With twenty years of dancing under her belt; Shana has trained in many styles with core focuses in Hip Hop, Jazz, and Musical Theatre. She started teaching at the age of 17 at The Dance P.A.D, where she met now 3D owner Ms. Alicia and began teaching for her traveling daycare dance program. Teaching for both businesses for two years, Mrs. Shana decided she wanted to take her dance & performing career to the next level and applied for Broadway Dance Centre’s Summer Intern Program(now known as the professional semester). Upon acceptance in 2011, Shana moved up to New York City training under the dance industry’s top professionals and interning with Pulse Dance Convention. Once finishing her program, Shana decided to stay in New York City to audition and perform. During her time there she was able to perform in many off broadway productions, at fashion week, and even spent time playing music in a band for two years. While living in New York City, Shana also developed a huge passion for fitness, yoga, & cycling. In 2017 Shana moved back home to Florida after getting her yoga teaching certification to start exploring where she wanted to be in that industry. Immediately, Shana reconnected with Ms.Alicia and began teaching dance at 3D as well.
Since then, Shana has found that her passion & purpose in life is to encourage others through movement and their stories. She currently teaches Hip Hop and Ballet, Tap & Tumble at 3D, while also pursuing her fitness career with Rukus Cycling Studio as one of their lead instructors, and traveling trainers. Shana absolutely loves being able to share her love for dance with her students while encouraging them to have confidence in finding their own style of movement. She always aims for her classes to be more than a dance class for the kids. It’s not just an hour to learn, but a time to explore and grow themselves.
Since being at 3D, Shana has married and started her family. Her daughter Ezra currently takes classes with Mrs. Alicia. Shana has always thought of 3D as her second home, and is excited her daughter is now part of the 3D Fam as well.
