Delivering comfortable & stylish dance shoes for over 20 years
This is Our Why...
Founded in Newcastle, Australia in 2001, Vivaz Dance is one of the worlds longest operating and most trusted dance shoe retailers. Run out of the head office in Rosebery - A trendy suburb in heart of Sydney.
Our small team which is responsible for marketing, warehousing, design and logistics is led by designer and director, Amber Ben.
Amber’s career in the fashion industry spans more than 15 years -commencing as a pattern maker, cutter, and design assistant for the likes of Bettina Liano, Gorman and T.L Wood, while undertaking a fashion degree at a prestigious Melbourne design school. Amber then moved into production roles at Mimco, Seafolly and Aje, before finally taking the plunge into her own entrepreneurial venture with Vivaz Dance.
In the twenty years since opening its doors, Vivaz has made it’s mark in Australia and around the world as being one of the worlds most trusted, sought after, on-trend and wearable dance shoe brands in the world. This has been made possible by Amber’s experience working alongside the fashion powerhouses mentioned above, as well as through Amber's desire to see dancers have more choice in style when it comes to what they wear on their feet when dancing.
“When I first entered the latin dance scene and was told I would need to buy a pair of dance shoes, I put it off for as long as possible. I just couldn’t imagine myself wearing any of the styles I could see on the shelves!”
Amber describes her experience of purchasing her first pair of dance shoes in Sydney after taking some salsa classes.
