Shannon’s life-long love of the arts began at the young age of 7 as a competitive roller skater in Austin, TX. As her roller skating career progressed, Shannon was invited to compete at the Regional and National levels around the United States. After about 5 years of roller skating, she transitioned into the dance world where she danced for her local middle school and, eventually, high school drill teams.
During her tenure as a Leander High School Blue Belle, she was given the opportunity to serve as Company Leader and 1st Lieutenant. The wealth of experience Blue Belles offered gave Shannon the ability to expand her team-building and leadership skills while broadening her dance knowledge.
Shortly after graduating from high school in 2001, Shannon was invited to be on staff with Half-Time Entertainment (HTE). HTE allowed Shannon to continue her passion for dance and reach out to up and coming dancers at various Line and Officer camps across Texas.
With this momentum, Shannon auditioned and was accepted onto the 62nd Line of the World Famous Kilgore College Rangerettes. During her freshmen year, she was selected as one of 10 elite dancers, known as the ‘Swingsters’, who was called on for additional performances. As her sophomore year unfolded, she was honored to serve her fellow Rangerettes as Left End Lieutenant. Throughout her, two years as a Rangerette, performances at Governor Rick Perry’s Inaugural Parade in 2002 and the Indie 500 in 2003 were among her favorites!
Shannon completed her Associate of Arts degree at Kilgore College in 2003 and transferred to Texas State University where she studied Biology and Business. Although her focus was on academics, she continued to pursue dance opportunities in the Central Texas area. She has happily appointed guest roles in the Texas State University Choreographer’s Showcase in 2005 and 2006. She also began assisting the Diamond Stars Dance Team in Round Rock, TX.
Cassidy grew up in the Austin area and started dancing with the Austin Conservatory of Dance (now the Austin Conservatory of the Arts) when she was 3 years old. She’s been in the dance studio and on the dance floor ever since. She has studied and/or competed for top area studios/teams including The Round Rock Repertory Dance Center, The Dance Gallery, Ballet Austin, and of course…Müv.
When she wasn’t in the studio, Cassidy could be found learning and performing on her school dance teams. She danced at Walsh Middle School for one year, then transferred to Gateway College Preparatory where she competed on the Gateway Stars Varsity team from 7th grade through her senior year. While a Star, Cassidy served as Lieutenant her Freshman and Sophomore years and then earned the position of Team Captain her Junior and Senior years. Cassidy won numerous dance competitions for her dancing and choreography. She was awarded Best Dancer four years in a row, and she garnered many awards from Crowd Pleasers Dance, Showmakers of America, Showstoppers, and Showtime, as well as the Vista Ridge Dance Classic and HTE.
Upon graduating from Gateway, Cassidy was selected to the 80th Line of The World Famous Kilgore College Rangerettes. As a Rangerette, Cassidy performed both nationally and abroad most notably at the Cotton Bowl Classic in Dallas, the 2019 Birmingham International Tattoo in England, the 2021 Presidential Inaugural Parade, and the 2021 Virginia International Tattoo in Norfolk, Virginia. Cassidy was selected to the elite dance group within the Rangerettes, the Swingsters, and was awarded the Most Versatile Dancer award and Most Outstanding Student for the Kilgore College Dance Department. Cassidy graduated with honors from Kilgore College with an Associate of Arts degree with a focus on dance and will continue her studies at Texas State University.
Over the years, Cassidy has choreographed for dancers and teams in Central Texas and beyond. Before coming to Müv, she worked for Showmakers of America where she has been a college staffer and instructor for three years. Cassidy is super excited to be a part of the Müv family and looks forward to working with amazing and talented dancers in the Austin area.
