Is a dipladenia a vine

I have brought my dipladenia indoors for the winter. It is now shooting vine shoots. Should I cut them off to keep the plant bush?

Technically, yes, it is a vine, but only when there is not enought light. It will seek out more by climbing. It can be kept in a bushier form with trimming, but I wouldn't press pruning too hard over winter.
