Shannon’s passion is providing quality dance education to students of all ages. She trained at Canada’s National Ballet School (NBS) in their Teacher Training Program, and graduated with distinction in 2018. While at NBS, Shannon became a certified RAD ballet teacher as well as studied NBS pedagogy and Cecchetti pedagogy. Shannon taught in NBS’s Sharing Dance Outreach Program, Adult Ballet Program, Professional Ballet Program (drama instructor), and Associates Program.
Shannon was born and raised in Saskatchewan, and always hoped to be able to teach and live in Saskatoon. She completed her Education Degree at the University of Saskatchewan in 2015, and teaches Elementary Fine Arts in the Saskatoon Public School Division. She is proud to be able to inspire creativity and a love of movement in all her students!
Shannon has also completed her teacher certification exams in PBT (Progressing Ballet Technique) and ISTD (Folk and National Dance). She is accredited as a Dancing for Parkinson’s and Dancing with Dementia Instructor, and teaches classes locally in the Saskatoon area. Shannon has studied and examined in other forms of dance, including Cecchetti and ADAPT (Jazz and Tap).
Shannon is so grateful to be able to share her passion for ballet with her students at La Danse.
