Love Shannon and love this place, but more importantly my 7 year old LOVES it!
A professional, safe, and nurturing studio that puts on spectacular shows with age appropriate, yet innovative and beautiful choreography. A classy and well run dance studio.
Legacy and Miss Shannon are fantastic. I've danced for Shannon for many years now and she has taught me so much. She's caring and compassionate. I will now be dancing in college and I owe Miss Shannon a lot of credit for my success.
I wish I could have trained at Legacy Dance Studio from the start of my dance career, I’ve know Shannon personally for many years and she was the one who inspired me to keep dancing! I am now going to be a Senior dance major at Florida Southern College and I couldn’t thank her enough for believing in me and allowing me to persue what I love. I would highly recommend Legacy Dance Studio to anyone in or close to the Port Orange area!
Both my girls have known Ms Shannon since they were 3 and she has always made dancing exciting to them!!!! She is an amazing choreographer as well as an extremely talented teacher who uses the strengths of my girls to cultivate passion in their dancing and builds their dancing ability each and everyday...They have improved leaps and bounds in just one year at Legacy! We are proud to be a part of the Legacy family!
So thankful to have found Legacy Dance Studio and Ms. Shannon! We wanted to introduce our daughter to dance at age 4 with a studio that nurtured a love and passion for dance while teaching her discipline and structure as well! This studio has the perfect blend! We did a lot of research before enrolling, as my sister owns a dance studio in Austin, Texas and gave me pointers on what to look for! Legacy Dance Studio is hands down the best studio in our area, and Ms Shannon is the best teacher! We love her!
We have been at The Legacy Dance Studio since the doors opened! I have fully enjoyed watching my daughter grow right along side of the owner. Mrs. Shannon creates a wonderful balance of strict hard work with a fun loving atmosphere. She also has an awesome competitive dance team for the big dreamers who are dedicated to growing professionally into the dance arena. This has allowed us to see and experience Shannons creative extraordinary talent in choreography. She is super innovative and unique.
This studio is amazing! Mrs. Shannon (the owner and teacher) plans out her classes so perfectly with the right amount of fun dance AND the she challenges the students with new dance steps every week as well! She is so organized and talented! She has a big heart as well and truly cares about her students and staff! The studio is extremely neat and clean too! Best overall dance studio, teacher, and staff in town! #excellence #balance #art
"My daughters have both been dancing for a few years with Shannon. When Shannon opened up her own studio it was a perfect fit for our family and we couldn't be happier!"
"My daughter has been dancing with Ms. Shannon for several years. We were overjoyed to hear she was opening her own studio. My daughter has learned so much this year at Legacy. Shannon is patient and critiques with love to build character as a dancer. We are very happy with Legacy Dance and would recommend to anyone."
"Shannon Thomas did a beautiful job choreographing my dance solo for a high school pageant. She understood my style and showcased my strengths. For the past 4 years I have been able to participate in numerous group dances she has choreographed including jazz, hip hop, lyrical, acro, and modern. Her unique dance is reflected in each dance . She is always up-beat and makes learning choreography fun from simple to challenging routines."
"I had the opportunity to meet Shannon in college and it is obvious that dancing runs through her veins. She is an excellent dancer/instructor and choreographer with an unparellled passion for the art. Her creativity and and personality shine through in all aspects of her life. I would highly recommend her to anyone wanting to improve themselves in the performing arts arena."
"I danced with Shannon for many years throughout school. She was 100% passionate about dance from the time I met her when she was 11 years old. She still carries that same excitement and love for dance as she did back then. Shannon has a gift for choreography; I love her work. She has a unique ability to capture the feeling of a song and create performance art from it. Anyone who has the priveledge of learning from Shannon will be better because of itless."
"Mrs. Shannon I just wanted to take a quick second and say thank you for teaching us dance in papillon and taking time out of your day to do that. I've noticed at the DSC dance practice that I move so much bigger now like how you taught us to. Especially when I used to dance so small. So thank you for helping me improve."
"Shannon is a high energy, cutting edge choreographer who is passionate about helping her students dance from their hearts. Shannon's style adapts well to students of different levels and technical abilities. She understands and uses multiple choreographic elements that make her work fun to perform and entertaining to watch. "
- Director Spruce Creek Colorguard
"Having taught Shannon in my high school history class and witnessing her personal dance performance successes, I was always amazed at her incredibly strong sense of self coupled with unexpected humility. Her years of continuous schooling and professional teaching have helped her further develop along those same lines. Shannon is sensitive to the needs of her students, while at the same time, encouraging younger dancers to grasp for the proverbial brass ring while always questioning the means to reach a student even more effectively. I was honored when she accepted my offer to work with my team at Spruce Creek and my semi-professional performance troupe based in Orlando. Shannon's gifted sense of communication reaches audiences from 8 to 38 with no problem."
