Shannon Taylor (Owner & Instructor)

Shannon has been with Fred Astaire Dance Studios for over 9 years.  She, along with her husband Ethan Konig, often performs and teaches throughout the Greater Cleveland area. She has been a featured dancer on Channel 8, RNC Cleveland events, PRIDE Cleveland, NBA halftime performances, local Chagrin Falls shows, UH Hospital’s “Dancing With the Docs” program, Lake County’s Dancing Under the Stars program, and more. She helped coach the dance team, ‘Dance Does it!’ who earned a Bronze medal at the 2017 World Winter Games: Special Olympics. Shannon started in theater and vocals at 5-years-old, has been training in belly dancing since she was 12, and began studying ballroom at 16.  She has helped to, and put together, local and national competitions (Transplant Games 2016), large events, and showcases. Her favorite part about dancing is that it brings together so many different communities. To help do so, she frequently organizes ways to help local and national non-profits & charities.
