Shawn may have started dancing later than most professionals, but that hasn’t stopped her yet. She credits Jimmie DeFore Dance Center for her divine training and diversity.

Shawn teaches at multiple dance studios in South Orange County and was previously on faculty at Jimmie DeFore Dance Center. Shawn has had the privilege of working with several high schools in the area including Edison, Corona Del Mar and Polytechnic in Long Beach. Shawn choreographed a live performance for pop artist Viennie V as well as a music video for Brazilian pop sensation, Liz D. Shawn has also created Flash Mobs for private parties and VANS.

Not only a brilliant choreographer, Shawn has lit up the stage with artists such as Deborah Cox, Apoetnomadali and MO’AT, just to name a few. Shawn appeared in the third installment of the Harold and Kumar movies.

Shawn is thankful to be able to make a living doing the one thing she loves the most.

Shawn brings such great energy and charisma; we are thrilled to have her as an instructor at Avanti!
