Wedding Dance Lessons

Shannon was a phenomenal find. I was planning my sister's bachelorette party, and left in a bind when our burlesque dance instructor cancelled on us last minute. Shannon was quick to reply to my messages, and made us feel safe (in these pandemic times) by sending us a photo of her vaccination card (plus she wore a mask while teaching). She was patient with a group of 8 non-dancer women (plus one attending via Zoom), and taught us a full routine within two hours. She even filmed the final product for us, as a souvenir for our bride. We really enjoyed working with her, and my other sister (who's getting married in two months) is planning on hiring her to do a first dance class for her/her fiance. Thanks for everything, Shannon! It was meant to be that we found you. :-) We're so grateful!

Private Dance Lessons

Shannon was amazing. She’s already giving us one lesson in ballroom. We are two men and she taught which one of us to lead and which one of us to follow. She showed up exactly when requested and taught us exactly what we wanted. We’re looking forward to the next sesh!

Wedding Dance Lessons

Gave us a one hour efficient dance lesson for my fiancée and I on our wedding night. Was just the right amount of teaching for amateurs like us. First dance at wedding went great! Give Shannon a call if you need any help!

Working with Shannon as been a wonderful experience. I hired her to help teach me the basics and fundamentals of dance, starting with Jazz and some basic aspects of Ballet. She is so knowledgeable, having spent most of her life taking dance and studying with well known LA professionals. She takes her time with me, going over things as slowly as I need, with incredible patience. She breaks things down to the mechanics, teaching me how the muscles move and how to strengthen them, and then puts it all together so that I feel like my body is moving with intention and purpose. Shannon also brings a lot of variety to her instruction. Some days we'll spend time working on the fundamentals. Sometimes we'll move across the floor putting moves together, and sometimes she'll teach me choreography. She always listens to me when I ask if we can work on something particular. And, she can read my mood and change things up based on how I'm feeling. I may sometimes find it difficult to get motivated to get up and move my body, but as soon as I'm at a dance lesson with Shannon, I feel immediately better and my mood is boosted for the rest of the day. Shannon is also very attentive. She's always watching my performance and technique and offering me notes for improvement while also pointing out when I'm improving. She keeps me motivated! I highly recommend dance lessons with Shannon! She's knowledgeable, talented, and so much fun to learn from. As she teaches me and shows me moves and routines, I always say to myself, "yes, I want to dance like that!"

Shannon is a great choreographer! She gave my soon-to-be-wife and I wedding dance lessons and I couldn't be happier with the superb job she did! We wholeheartedly recommend her services!
