Shannon DeBusscher-Churilla's passion for dance came at a very young age of 3. For the past twenty five plus years Shannon has trained in Michigan, California and New York. Her experiences have allowed her to train with some of the best dancers and teachers in the world. While being a dancer in the competition world Shannon has won major competitions in key dancing events around the country. As a young teenager, she wanted to share her skill and experience with other dancers and became a teacher and choreographer. Her passion was fueled as she influenced other young children to love dance, to achieve their goals and to grow as exceptionally talented competitors. After finishing out her competition life in 2003 Shannon toured on the Royal Caribbean to many different locations in the world as one of their performers. After a year of sailing she returned back to Michigan to continue her dream as a teacher.
It was obvious to Shannon and her family that dance would be her life and through hard work and determination, that she would someday achieve her dream of owning a dance studio. As the owner/director of Underground Dance Company, Shannon is committed to creating a positive environment where young children can thrive and experience the joy of dancing.
