Danita Shaheen is a professional dancer, choreographer, teacher, and certified Pilates instructor from New York. She has performed nationally and internationally with numerous contemporary, modern, and jazz/ hip hop companies. She currently teaches dance classes to students of all ages and levels at public schools, dance studios, professional workshops, summer intensives, and private lessons.
Her class focus is on sequential movement, momentum, anatomical alignment and musicality. She asks the student to think about where their movement initiates from, and how it transitions fluidly to the next. We investigate the textures, tensions, and weight of our phrase work and discuss how our rhythm and breath will encourage dynamic artistry.
She is very excited to share her passion for dance with the talented students of Shoreline Ballet.
