She also studied flamenco and folkloric in Mexico with El Arca, tap and jazz in Los Angeles with Patsye Swayze and flamenco greats Lydia Torea, Jose Junco and Adela Clara. Shannon choreographed numerous dances and held workshops throughout Oklahoma. She was honored as one of Oklahoma’s official Artists in Residence and was an instructor with the National Endowment for the Arts Creative Communities program.

Shannon was a featured artist, dancing the world premiere role of Death with Oklahoma City Ballet in Carmen in 2014. She also taught castanets and shared her passion for Spanish dancing with OKC Ballet company members. Shannon continued to perform with Oklahoma’s own Edgar Cruz in appearances throughout the nation. Shannon was founder and artistic director of İFlamenco Fantastico! and continued the tradition of excellence as director of the award-winning Everything Goes Youth, Junior & Senior Companies, established in 1976.

Shannon was featured at San Diego’s California Performing Arts Theatre and in flamenco videos for PBS Television. She was master Flamenco instructor and performer at the annual Robert L.
