Jazz Funk

Shawnette Heard believes that every move tells a story, and for a decade or so she’s helped some of the industry’s biggest names share their stories with the world.  The Los Angeles native’s talents quickly attracted the attention of celebrated choreographers, Frank Gatson, Tina Landon and Jaime King, who hired her to dance beside icons like MICHAEL JACKSON and MADONNA.  With hard work and determination she soon shifted from a dancer to a choreographer with household name recognition creating for the likes of today's biggest stars such as BEYONCE, PINK, and JANET JACKSON to name a few.  The light continues to shine bright for Mrs Heard.  She has followed her dream of becoming a successful filmmaker and production company Co-founder, but dance is at the core of her being. For Shawnette, passion breeds perfection. She believes that a well-rounded approach to technique is the basis for a long, successful career in dance and is eager to pass the torch to tomorrow's great dancers.

Class Description:

Shawnette has cultivated her own style of dance. She likes to say "she was raised by the best in the business", which has allowed her to grow into who she is as an artist today. Her strong performance presence, mixed with a jazz funk/modern blend is what Shawnette's style is all about.  Her unique style is a fusion of female and male energy and has caught the attention of studios at home and abroad. With Shawnette being an EDGE SCHOLARSHIP ALUMNI, she is eager to share her style and experience with those whom follow in her footsteps.
