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.
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.
