Shannon’s mother taught her everything she knows. After graduating from NIDA with a BA in 2007, she struggled to find the treadmill, competitive dance, or really any type of traditional exercise very alluring. She looked to her heroes: Jane Fonda, Richard Simmons, David Bowie and Madonna and they told her what to do: create her workout class!
Retrosweat combines her love of iconic, timeless pop, vintage fashion and a mission to make dance and movement accessible to, and enjoyable for, everybody. She loves using Retrosweat to take people on a theatrical and joyous time travelling journey so they can forget their 21st century dilemmas, lose their inhibitions, resurrect their inner child and have a damn good time.
