Meet the Owner
Shannon Thomas has been dancing since the age of four years old and hasn’t stopped since! She grew up in Port Orange performing and competing, winning top honors throughout the state of Florida for her solo and group performances. She attended Oklahoma City University for four years studying dance extensively in their prestigious program. Shannon is not only an accomplished dancer, but an outstanding choreographer and educated instructor of many styles of dance. She has been awarded many over all scores and choreography awards, and plans to grow her Performing Arts Company, The Legacy Stars, into a flourishing performance and competitive dance team.
At The Legacy Dance Studio our program is designed for your dancer to grow individually. We are dedicated to offering classes with a high standard of technique, style and performance. Through discipline, encouragement and hard work excellence can be achieved by gradually increasing dance subjects studied and expanding performance opportunities for our students. In order to accomplish these goals, core values in integrity, respect, responsibility, character and professionalism must be maintained.
It is the philosophy of The Legacy Dance Studio to embrace movers at all levels and ages. Our intention is to create a structured, loving, creative environment where students are inspired to express themselves through the art of dance. We use a process oriented curriculum that builds upon the foundations of ballet, tap and jazz dance to create a safe, strong foundation for our students to flourish as they grow and discover their inner dancer. Dance education goes further than just the dance steps, at Legacy students will learn proper body alignment, technique, terminology, and the basic fundamentals needed to pursue dancing in college or professionally.
What to Expect
Classes are offered in the styles of Ballet, Jazz, Contemporary, Hip Hop, Turns and Leaps, Tap and Acrobatics for ages 3-18. Each class is divided by age and ability levels to ensure each student is getting the proper training they need to excel. From recreational to competitive- our classes are always a fun and nurturing environment for all of our students. We take pride in offering an age-appropriate program and this applies to all costuming and music choices used for classes, showcases, performances and competitions.
The overall goal of the program is to transition aspiring dancers, ages 10 and up, into members of our exclusive Pre-Professional Performing Arts Company, The Legacy Stars. The Stars will have designated performances and competitions through out the year, workshop opportunities, guest teachers, and summer study opportunities. These students are dedicated to dance and take regular classes weekly as well as extra rehearsals, competition and performance commitments.
