Our dancers come together to enlighten the Barry University community on how we dance and differ from the generally perceived notion of a dancer. Our dances range from Soca, Dance-hall, Salsa, Bachata, hip hop and even ballet. Island Vybz is also an extension organization of the Caribbean Student Association. Our dance team competes at the Florida Caribbean Student Association's Talent Competition and performs widely between on campus events such as moonlight madness, involvement fairs and any event requested to dance for. We are also requested off campus to participate in Miami Carnival, perform at Jerk festivals and to be apart of the Miami Flash Mob. If a wide range of dancing is what you are looking for, Island Vybz is the dance team for you.Marly Jean-Jacques
