What People Are Saying

Shannon is a very insightful and knowledgeable individual in the dance industry. I opened my performing arts academy in fall 2017, and she took the time to share a lot of helpful information as well as a copy of a teacher handbook she put together. It is so nice to have professionals in the industry looking out for each other and offering a helping hand. Thanks Shannon for all your wisdom!

Shannon, I absolutely love The Holistic Guide to Journaling for Dance Students. It allows me to have a conversation with each student in a way that is non intrusive and supportive. I change the questions slightly to fit my curriculum and the content we are presently working on. Thank you so much.

I think The Holistic Guide to Goal Setting for Dancers is very thorough with excellent examples of goals.
