Teacher Of The Month
A former dance studio owner and director, Miss Allison came to Classic Image Dance in 2014, and many of her students joined her here. Allison started dancing at age 3 and grew up dancing locally at Victoria's Dance Depot in Ahwatukee, and trained in Ballet, Jazz, Tap, Lyrical, and Musical Theater. She went on to her dream college, the University of Arizona, where she obtained her undergraduate degree in journalism with a minor in dance from the prestigious School of Dance. Miss Allison’s teaching style is fun, but structured, with a focus on improvement and helping her students build self-confidence. Without any hesitation, she will tell you that her favorite part of being a teacher is watching her students grow. Allison is a mom to an adorable toddler, and she and her husband and son are expecting a baby girl to join their family early in 2018. With any spare time she has outside of the studio these days, you’re likely to find Miss Allison enjoying her family and time with her son, dreaming about a cruise ship vacation or decorating her house.

As soon as I found out I was having a girl I knew I was counting down the days until she was old enough to start dance! I absolutely love this place and I love Ms. Shannon! She is so patient with my daughter and welcomes her with open arms. I can’t wait to see my daughter’s growth and progress at this studio. ~ Mazie A. CID Parent
