During her four years at UC Irvine, she performed as a member of Modern Dance legend Donald McKayle’s Etude Repertory Ensemble, danced in various BFA and MFA thesis projects, and choreographed for many shows, including presenting her forty minute long BFA Honors Thesis concert at the end of her senior year. During Shannon’s last two years on campus, she was the club accountant for Bare Bones Dance Theater, a student-run nonprofit organization that encourages and supports all art, but especially dance, on campus. After graduation from UCI, Shannon trained and received her certification as a Pilates instructor under Diane Diefenderfer at Studio Du Corps in Costa Mesa.
