“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, Dance Teacher
Amanda's Dance Center
"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."
