Shannon Pay: Rising dancing success
At the age of five Shannon Pay first put on
a pair of dance shoes which introduced
her to ballet and jazz.
Turn the clock on several years, and this love
of dance was now firmly embedded in her life,
with numerous successes coming her way
Now 18 years old, Shannon has embraced
Hip-Hop within her dancing loves, and this
has opened further doors for her within her
Currently a student at the Jade School of
Dance, Shannon came to these classes on a
scholarship from her Jazz Dance school and
began to learn Hip-Hop some six years ago.
Since then her dancing, her skill and her
expertise has grown to such a level, that she
now has the opportunity to take it up to a
further level and embrace a career in
Commercial dance by attending dance school
in Melbourne, Australia.
Shannon's teacher Jade McDowall said that
this is an incredible step for her student to be taking, but one which is a natural one for the
talent she has.
"I saw the talent in Shannon from the minute
she came to my classes," Jade said. "She
combines her natural talent in dance, with
hard work and enthusiasm."
"Everything I challenge her with, she revels in.
She really is your dream pupil and a pleasure
Shannon is interested in a career in dance, so
applying for and being accepted to the
Melbourne Dance World Studio, in the
elite course, is exciting.
"Here Shannon will learn everything --
ballet, jazz and it has a strong hip-hop
component which Shannon loves. It's
two years full-time with a course cost
of $10,000 (AUS) a year, so it is a big
Within dance, Jade says Shannon is a
risk taker -- keen to give anything a go.
"I just have to say, how about we try
this here, and Shannon is doing it."
Shannon also gives back to those in
the dance group, and is now taking
three classes of Hip-Hop with the younger
dance members for Jade.
And many who attended the combined end
of year 'Alice in Danceland' production put on
by the 'Kelly's School of Jazz' and 'Jade School
of Dance' in 2011 will recall Shannon on stage
there and will have been witness to this
incredible talent she has.
Fundraising Concert for talented dancer
Getting behind her talented dance
pupil and helping to fundraise to help
with the costs associated with taking
up her Dance opportunity in Melbourne
beginning in 2013, was the catalyst behind
the concert being organised for this Sunday
and being held at the St James Theatre in
Jade McDowall from the Jade School of
Dance says the event is a Variety concert
which is bringing dancers and musicians
together in support of Shannon.
Two concerts will be held 2:00 p.m with a
further one at 7:00 p.m and will feature
dancers from the Jade School of Dance, the
Kelly School of Jazz Dance, local singers and
performers, and several Highland dancers.
''Support for this event has been fantastic,''
Jade said. ''So many people have put their
hand up to help support Shannon.''
Tickets are available from Cairns Music at
