November 2017: #BaMFaM Spotlight - Shannon Huygens Paliotta
From the time we started embracing dance, Shannon was a huge part of our journey. She taught us how to have fun on and off the dance floor - and to always be sharp! Her spirit and passion for dance has helped us to learn and grow; in fact, before BaM, we taught with Shannon via STM and it grew from there. Shannon is a role model for us - being a successful career woman, raising a family and still finding the time for dance. We are so excited to continue on this adventure with Shannon as part of the BaMFaM!
