Vivian opened her School of Classical Ballet in 1973 after many years of professional touring dance experience. A native El Pasoan, she attended her first ballet at the age of four when she was just barely big enough to look over the seats at the old Liberty Hall. She fell in love with ballet that night and has been dancing ever since.
Vivian's first teacher of major importance was Katherine Clark, former soloist with the Ballet Russe de Monte Carlo, and also studied with Ingeborg Heuser and became a soloist with Ms. Heuser's first performing company.
Vivian's teachers have been among the best in the history of ballet: Madame Dubrovska, Mr. Obukoff, Victor Moreno, Natasha Krassovska, Alexandria Danilova, Mia Slavenska, Allegro Ballet School, Chicago, George Balanchine's School of American Ballet, New York.
