Now Playing: #SAMspotlight on ViBeat Dance


In our latest episode of the #SAMspotlight series, we sit down with our client ViBeat Dance Studio‘s AD Darshini Shah to talk about the communicative power of dance, the company’s journey since launching in 2015, and her strong commitment to anti-bullying and teaching empathy through arts and culture.

“[ViBeat] is an extension of me, Darshini Shah. It is my happy place and a welcoming environment for all ages, races, beliefs, and abilities. Dance is for everyone and instills self-confidence that not many other mediums can do.”

This short video was filmed on the east coast of Canada in Dartmouth, Nova Scotia. This is a part of Mi’kma’ki, the unceded and unsurrendered land of the Mi’kmaq People. This territory is covered by the “Treaties of Peace and Friendship,” which Mi’kmaq and Wolastoqiyik (Maliseet) people first signed with the British Crown in 1725. The treaties did not deal with the surrender of lands and resources but recognized Mi’kmaq and Wolastoqiyik (Maliseet) title and established the rules for what was to be an ongoing relationship between nations. 

Please learn about the treaties across Turtle Island and in your area at
