My name is Shannon, I am a 25 year old passionate individual with 12 years experience in dancing and 10 years of experience teaching dance. I specialize in ballroom, latin, ballet, jazz, hip hop, contemporary, modern and heels and have taught all ages and levels. I love to create an experience for each student, no matter what style you are looking for and to give you my best 100 percent of the time.

I am more passionate about dancing than anything else in life and it is a part of who I am. I love sharing that with the world and helping others find happiness, joy, confidence and so much more through the art of dance.

    Shannon was super attentive and made the environment for a first timer extremely comfortable and welcoming. Her energy is light and bubbly and allows you to put all your worries of not getting the steps right the first time at ease! I had a wonderful time in the environment Shannon created for my significant.

  • Alex M.

    She’s super knowledgable and capable. She’s very good at breaking down the steps and helping people identify and understand where they made subconscious mistakes. She’s also a very vibrant and fun personality that makes the lesson a comfortable environment while still informative. Dancing with her makes you feel like you’ve been dancing for years.

    Shannon is the best dance instructor I have had for all types of ballroom, salsa and swing. I have been taught by at least 10 dance instructors and Shannon is the only one who really takes the time to understand my issues. Unlike many instructors who barely learned to dance a year before becoming an instructor and are simply teaching you from a manual, Shannon lives, eats, and breathes dance. She has been doing it for over a decade. It doesn’t hurt that she has received extensive training by celebrity dancers and Beyoncé’s choreographer. Shannon also knows how to demonstrate each move (both leader and follower) perfectly and can break down the moves into simple instructions. I made more progress with Shannon in two lessons than I did with months of instruction by others. I wouldn’t hesitate to hire her.

    Shannon is a natural teacher. We tried several other instructors and a dance school before we worked with Shannon and nobody worked harder than Shannon to break down the steps, make learning fun, and keep us progressing. Now we can actually salsa, swing dance, cha cha and rumba at the drop of a hat! We can’t thank her enough for the gift of a joint hobby of social dancing for the last two years and counting. A super big thank you Shannon!!

FAQs


What is your typical process for working with a new student?

Depeding on the style of dance, the level a student wants to achieve as well as their learning style, I create a cirriculum that fits their needs and goals. 


What education and/or training do you have that relates to your work?

I have been dancing for 13 years and teaching for 10. I have extensive experience in ballroom, latin, ballet, jazz, hip hop, contemporary, modern, heels and burlesque. I have trained with many different instructors and coaches from all over as well as done mentorship programs with top industry pros and I'm always continuing to improve my own training as I evolve as a dancer. 


Do you have a standard pricing system for your lessons? If so, please share the details here.

My base rate is 80 an hour if it's in a 10 mile radius of Sherman Oaks. 

Outside of that radius a travel fee is included.

I am also running a New Year Special of 5 lessons for $340.
