She is one of two children of former NBA star Norm Nixon and dancer/choreographer/producer/director/actress Debbie Allen. She was named after her grandmother Vivian Ayers-Allen. Her aunt is actress Phylicia Rashad and her younger brother is basketball player Norm E. Nixon Jr. Vivian took gymnastics until she was 13, but when a fellow gymnast fell and was seriously injured, her mother took her out of the sport. She went on to study at the Kirov Academy of Ballet in Washington, D. C. and at the Debbie Allen Dance Academy in Los Angeles.

While still in her final year of the Ailey/Fordham BFA Program in Dance, she was cast as Kalinda by Hot Feet's conceiver/director/choreographer Maurice Hines. Hot Feet follows the classic storyline of The Red Shoes with a '70s funk facelift, and Kalimba is the ambitious girl at the center of it who can't stop dancing (literally).
