Shona started her dance journey at the young age of 2 following in her older sisters footsteps. She started her training with Gloria Doneathy, moving to Keldon School of Dance where she later taught for several years before opening her own school.
Shona always dreamt of opening her own dance school and this dream became a reality in 2004 following the birth of her daughter Abigail and with the support of her Mum Pauline who has now passed away. Pauline, known affectionately by the dancers as Auntie Pauline was a strong supporter of the school and occasional costume maker. Some of her costumes are still used to this day.
Shona is a Ballet Licenciate and Festival Adjudictor.
