Transformational Hoop Dance


Shannon is a lover of all art forms with a professional background in photography and design and schooling in the fine arts and dance, and more recently work as a DJ and further exploration of music via study of guitar, singing and song writing.

In 2008 Hoop dance became another natural and much needed outlet of artistic expression that was a ‘love at first hoop’ story after finding some kids’ Target hoops for a house warming party. After she found the hoops she soon serendipitously stumbled on the semi-underground hoop dance revival by hearing of nearby hoop dance classes offered by Noelle Powers. From that first connection with Powers she met lovely local hoopers,found a whole wondrous hoop community attended hoop jams and a visiting Hoop Path workshop which lead to attending the annual Hoop Path retreat in 2010, She also made fast friends with local hoop teacher Jocelyn Gorden of Love Movement Healing Arts who inspired and facilitated her move to the next level- that of teacher training with famous hooper Anah Reichenbach, aka Hoopalicious, last summer 2010.

Shannon lives in Takoma Park, MD in the DC area and brings her artistic gifts, musical intuition and love of dance into her hoop dance and her teaching and she is currently offering classes at Contradiction Dance Studio in Silver Spring, MD for the summer session starting June 23rd- August 25th Thursdays from 7-8pm.

Update for 2016, Shannon has relocated to Tucson, Arizona. No current classes. Thank you!
