Shakin' It With Shawn

Shawn loves to dance!  Always known as the quiet grrrl, her cousins in Nebraska first noticed her love of dance when they saw her dancing to "Mony Mony" by Tommy James and the Shondells when she was eight years old.  Shawn's formal training in dance began late in life - age 28.  She formed a strong foundation in ballet, dance, jazz, and tap as a student at Cerritos Community College in Cerritos, California as well as at California State Polytechnic University in Pomona, California.  She's auditioned and performed in college dance concerts and has taken master classes in ballet from the Bolshoi Ballet dancers and masters from other professional dance troupes.  After having her second child she just couldn't get that extra weight off so she decided to take up up Middle Eastern dance to get back into shape.  Soon a group called Fringe Elements asked her to join their performance dance troupe in Riverside, California.  Briefly, she was an assistant belly dance instructor.  In 2005, her family sold almost all they owned and left California forever to travel the USA and God led them to settle down in super rural Sierra County, New Mexico, where when she's not working as a Purchasing Tech or studying theology to teach Bible classes, she is teaching Zumba classes!   A firm believer that dance is for every age, Shawn enjoys the opportunity to watch students build their confidence and endurance as they attend her Zumba class.  Her students have ranged from grade school age all the way up to women in their 70s.  Her happiest dreams are dancing dreams and she hopes to keep dancing for ever and ever and ever.
