My Journey


Emylee Ratzlaff

The Story of the Vibe Queen

Believe it or not, I did not originally set out my career to become a dancer. In fact I actually have a degree in Mechanical Engineering. However I quickly learned that corporate life was not for me and left to pursue my first love: Fitness and Nutrition.

I started using Instagram to build a community and share my health journey, but along the way I was sidetracked by a new hobby.

Enter: Shuffling

I discovered shuffling through an ex-boyfriend and fell in love after going to my first festival (EDC Las Vegas). It was then that I decided I was going to get really freaking good at this new form of dance.

I shared my journey on social media, and as shuffling gained popularity, so did I. I got better and better and was enjoying every second of it. 

Then 2020 rolled around, and I lost my part-time job (shuffling was not paying my bills at that time). And that's when I decided to go all in.

I started teaching 1 on 1 virtual lessons and eventually created The Shuffle Vault.

The Shuffle Vault has grown more than I ever could have expected or dreamed, and getting to be your teacher has been an honor. I know that dancing will bring you the same joy that it has brought me.

My Glow Up

We all started somewhere

I started teaching myself how to learn to shuffle in April of 2018. Watch me grow from the very beginning!
