Shannon Butler is a 3rd-generation jitterbug. She grew up watching her grandparents light up the dance floor. Around the age of four, she was enrolled in her first formal lessons at her great aunt's dance school, while her mother taught her popular dances of the 1950s-60s at home. She followed in their footsteps, becoming a dance instructor in 1997. Since then she has since taught locally, nationally and overseas. Shannon credits learning from and dancing with family for helping to shape her patient and welcoming approach to dance. She believes dance isn't just a life-long skill and fun exercise, it is an endeavor open to all, with the power to energize, rejuvenate and bring people together.
