Viv began gymnastics age 2 in the family owned Manica’s Gymnastics and Dance School. Competing internationally from the age of 6, Viv's passion for coaching others saw her begin teaching at the tender age of 8 years old. Becoming also the youngest accredited gymnastics judge at the age of 13. Viv at the age of 13 along with her sister Laura choreographed Manica's performance for the National Gymnaestrada in 1993 (Gymnaestrada is similar to todays cheerleading combining dance/acrobatics/gymnastics in a team event) This performance saw the team selected to be the first team ever to represent Australia at the World Gymnaestrada in Berlin Germany 1995. Upon selling the business and moving to Bali Indonesia, Viv established the first ever Dance and Gymnastics School in Bali at the age of 15. Whilst in Bali she had the opportunity to choreograph and perform for touring music acts at the time. Moving back to Perth at age 19 Viv has shared her knowledge teaching workshops in and around the metro area, and conducted workshops in regional WA along with Raz Laver to engage our indigenous youth.
Initially specialising in choreography and acrobatics upon meeting Raz in 2004 Viv started breaking and become a pivotal community member in the important evolution of female breakers (b-girls). Viv trained and performed with Systematic Crew for various events and tv broadcasts. She also founded Perths leading choreography dance crew 3RD Degree and the all female breaking Crew Form1Lane enjoying the same level of success of performing and competing locally and nationally.
Viv teaches students in all areas of specialty, with a large focus on setting and achieving personal goals. Teaching at home Vivica showed interest in acro at a very young age and Viv was happy to take on the challenge!
At home with the family, breaking, teaching party grooves, doing yoga challenges and all-around goofing around are the activities and memories Viv cherishes the most. Hoping to raise strong,confident, well-adjusted young ladies that understand their power and value is an imperative passion point for Viv.
