Dance CLasses * Choreography * Private Lessons
My name is Shannon Thomas and I am a Daytona Beach native and currently the Owner of The Legacy Dance Studio and Co-Director of Papillon Dance Ensemble at Spruce Creek High School. My true passion is choreography and providing the best dance experience for those I have the pleasure to work with. My choreography experience ranges from youth dance, competitive dance, the stage, wedding dances, Quinceanera's and more!

"Having taught Shannon in my high school history class and witnessing her personal dance performance successes, I was always amazed at her incredibly strong sense of self coupled with unexpected humility. Her years of continuous schooling and professional teaching have helped her further develop along those same lines. Shannon is sensitive to the needs of her students, while at the same time, encouraging younger dancers to grasp for the proverbial brass ring while always questioning the means to reach a student even more effectively. I was honored when she accepted my offer to work with my team at Spruce Creek and my semi-professional performance troupe based in Orlando. Shannon's gifted sense of communication reaches audiences from 8 to 38 with no problem."
-Shawn P. McKaig, Director Spruce Creek Colorguard
“Shannon is a high energy, cutting edge choreographer who is passionate about helping her students dance from their hearts. Shannon's style adapts well to students of different levels and technical abilities. She understands and uses multiple choreographic elements that make her work fun to perform and entertaining to watch. " -Deborah Coe, Amanda's Dance Center
"Mrs. Shannon I just wanted to take a quick second and say thank you for teaching us dance in papillon and taking time out of your day to do that. I've noticed at the DSC dance practice that I move so much bigger now like how you taught us to. Especially when I used to dance so small. So thank you for helping me improve." -Kendall K.
