Teacher – Miss Shannon

Shannon Brown BA (Hons), LRAD, ARAD, RAD RTS

Shannon has been dancing since she was just three years old. She participated in many classes in her younger years at her local dance school in Clacton-on-sea. These classes consisted of ISTD Tap, Modern and Jazz, as well as the RAD Ballet syllabus. She has performed various roles in ballet shows with her local dance school, her favourite being the lead role she was given as Cinderella. Her passion towards teaching and commitment for ballet over the years was rewarded by her being offered a place to study at the Royal Academy of Dance, on the Ballet Education degree. The degree has allowed Shannon to explore new styles of dance, such as contemporary, in addition to further developing her skills as a teacher. These skills have allowed her to gain experience in teaching within multiple different settings, including private dance schools and public sectors. Shannon thoroughly enjoyed her time studying and took any given opportunity to expand her teaching knowledge alongside the degree. This is evident by her also achieving her Licentiate of the Royal Academy of Dance qualification (LRAD), as well as accomplishing her Advanced 2 exam, thus becoming an Associate of the Royal Academy of Dance (ARAD). Both these additional qualifications furthered her knowledge by gaining an elaborate and detailed understanding into the RAD syllabus to then pass these details onto students. Shannon has taught and continues to teach in multiple dance schools around London, and aims to always bring a fun and enthusiastic approach to teaching every class whilst simultaneously developing students technique and performance qualities. Shannon is delighted to be working at Holly Mayer Academy of Dance and is a ballet teacher, who is passionate about sharing her knowledge on the RAD syllabus to all her students to help them all indivually progress and develop their dancing.
