Shannon is one of the most inspiring teachers you will ever meet. She will work you hard, there will be giggles and chatter vs. sweat and tears, but most importantly, professional results. She doesn't just focus on the class as a whole, but she will analyse your own personal strengths and weaknesses and push you to be ...your best. After being trained by Shannon for a good 2 years, I couldn't believe how much I had learnt in such a small amount of time. I will always cherish the time I had with Shannon as she gave me the confidence I needed in order to pursue my dreams and stay true to myself.

I had the honour and privilege in working with Shannon when she was our Dance Director at the British Academy of International Arts (Kuwait). The students loved her and her dance choreography was incredible! She produced stunning award winning shows and was the epitome of style. Shannon has the talent and dedication required to mould and shape the dance world anywhere she goes. Wishing you all the very best and I'm sure your new dance studio will be nothing short of awe inspiring! Best of luck!

I worked alongside Shannon in Kuwait and I'd do it again in a heartbeat! She is extremely dedicated, knowledgeable, and very much in touch with what is healthy and unhealthy in the dance world. She is an inspiration and I loved dancing with her. In the future when I come to visit her in Griffith, the first place I will go to is her dance studio to take a class.

One of the reasons I pursued dancing was because of Shannon. She will believe in you 100% and try to get the best dancer out of you. She never gave up on me and pushed me to the maximum to improve my dancing, I shall never be able to thank her enough for all she has done for me. Not only is Shannon a great dance teacher, but her routines are incredible. I can still remember her choreography today and she has been able to create some of my favourite dances. She’s such a hard worker and a fantastic dancer with huge amounts of energy. If I was ever in Australia, I would be taking some classes for sure! Wishing you all the best Shannon!

Shannon was one of my dance teachers for a long time. She is determined, motivated and so energetic in all the classes that she teaches. She not only makes every class fun but works you hard and pushes you to work to the best of your abilities. Chookas Shan I know you'll do great!
Miss Shannon is definitely one of a kind! And one of the most talented dance teachers, who always influenced me to follow my dreams, her performing arts background is immaculate from teaching at some of the leading performing arts organisations of Australia to guiding her students through various dancing techniques to reach their best ability! It has been more than 15 years since Shannon became my dance teacher and we have still kept in contact. So happy to hear you are teaching again and wish l lived in Griffith so l could Dance with you again!
Shannon was my dance teacher for 6 years. She is a hardworking teacher who aims to help her students on a individual level to become the best dancers they can be. Her focus goes beyond teaching technique and discipline as she also shows her students through example the importance of having love and passion for dance. Goodluck Shannon, you will do amazing things!

I've known Shannon, danced with her and competed against her (in our younger days). I have since invited her to do workshops with my High School dance classes in Sydney. She is always energetic, passionate, motivated and very, very talented. Chookas to you Shannon.

Our wedding dance was Fanta-bulous because of Shannon, who would have thought we could dance Charleston, quick step and waltz all because of her!!! She is amazing!
