Managing Director for KM Agency and Studio Growth Coach at Dance Studio Owners Association
Shannon Westveer is the Managing Director for KM Agency. Having owned her own studio located in Chicago, she was an Inner Circle member for four years and a DSOA Coach for more than two years! Shannon was the co-owner of All About Dance, located in downtown Chicago. With more than 700 children in regular attendance, her motivation was to make sure that every child got to experience the art of dance, promoting self-confidence, positive values and success.
Shannon was known at All About Dance as Studio Guru Galore. That basically meant she was the glue that held the whole AAD dance mecca together. She was known for commanding a room of three year olds better than Barney! This is a condensed brief…
She has an extensive dance background that includes ballet, jazz, tap and hip hop training. Given her love for performing, Shannon participated in numerous dance competitions and pageants over the years. She has held several national and local titles including Miss Troy, Michigan, which qualified her for the Miss Teen Michigan USA Pageant. Shannon has organized annual dance camps in LaMardelle, Haiti, where for many years she along with other teachers, staff and students have spread the love of dance during a weeklong camp for 150 Haitian students.
Most recently Shannon was the Dance Studio Owners Association Inner Circle Program Manager and she is excited to continue sharing all of her industry specific knowledge and experience with dance studios throughout the world as a keynote speaker. Shannon and her husband David reside in Telluride, CO with their children Addison, Audrey and Lensky.
