Shannon just recently moved to the Twin Cities after graduating with a BFA in dance, a minor in communication studies, and a certificate in entrepreneurship in performing arts from the University of Iowa. Some of her previous work experience includes teaching for the University of Iowa Youth Ballet, Artistic Team member of the Iowa Dance Festival, and Administrative Office Intern for the Hollins MFA Dance program. Shannon is a dancer and performed work all throughout Iowa, Chicago, NYC, Virginia, Missouri, and more. Her favorite dance achievement is choreographing, producing, and performing in a little coffee shop show with some of her best friends. Before Shannon went to college, she graduated high school early to train and perform in NYC with the Joffrey Ballet School. Shannon is so thrilled to be here at Circus Juventas and learn more about all things circus.
