Shannon Primeau

The EGD family has partnered with Communities Foundation of Oklahoma in order to keep the legacy of the late and original founder of the Everything Goes Dance Studio Shannon Yolanda Calderon Primeau alive. The Shannon Primeau Memorial Scholarship is offered to students who are sophomores at the following universities; The University of Oklahoma, The University of Central Oklahoma, and Oklahoma City University. Students should apply the end of their freshmen semester going into their sophomore year. The following majors are acceptable to apply: dance education, dance therapy, dance performance, dance business / entrepreneurship, dance psychology, and dance pedagogy. Students must have a minimum of a 3.5 GPA.   The application is completed online on the Communities Foundation of Oklahoma website.

Recipients are recognized at our annual EGD Dance Revue.

The Shannon Primeau Memorial Scholarship committee is made up of the following individuals; Erika Carmen Vasquez (Founder), Jorgee Reyes, Adelita Dixon-Hernandez, Cameelah Pennington, Christy Harder, and Shirley Bellew. The committee welcomes donations anytime and any day, but there are two dates in particular that symbolize days of significance to Shannon Calderon Primeau; September 23rd (Birthday) and May 12th (Day of passing). Please keep these dates in mind and share with others these important days. Our committee is hard at work planning dinner banquets, raffles, and fundraisers to honor Shannon Primeau, her family, students, friends, and scholarship recipients.
