Students & Teams
Established in 2018, Embody by V LLC began as a Historically Black College & University (HBCU) Dance inspired competition and exhibition platform for students and dance teams serving the city of Columbia and surrounding areas. After noticing there was a lack of HBCU Dance resources in her school district, Ms. Stribling sprang to action. The HBCU Dance Prep program is the home of South Carolina's only HBCU Dance inspired Auxiliary Academy. This organization has since evolved into a full-service facility that trains individual students and teams who aspire to participate in the marching band dance and color guard on the high school and collegiate levels. We train dancers to be college and career ready through our Sports Entertainment curriculum.
We also offer dance fitness classes to student grades K- 12.
Our adult dance fitness classes range from step cardio, twerk cardio, and stretch-N-chill; bringing a fun and vibrant meaning to getting fit.
