"What Shannan brings to a collaboration is a unique blend of two aspects: she works hard AND she works smart. As the character coach, Shannan worked with the multitude of talented and international performers stemming from circus and visual arts, dance and singing. She brings out the best in everyone while serving the core emotion of the scene and the piece as a whole. AND she does all of this with a lightness, sensitivity and laughter that is second to none. I thank Shannan for her sublime generosity and expertise. VIVID would not have lifted to the heights it enjoys nightly without what Shannan brought of herself and of her craft.

"Shannan is a unique coach and an extremely talented performer. I have done a handful of workshops with her and every time she surpassed my expectations. She has helped me see comedy through a new lens. Before working with Shannan when things didn't go to plan on stage I would get frustrated or feel lost. Now I seize the opportunity to play, turning a mistake into comedy gold! Her coaching and guidance has brought my performances at Blue Man Group to the next level."

"Honest and bold; Shannan was the perfect coach to help me get rid of the walls/limits I had playing Glamour Girl in the show VIVID. One session with her was enough for me to experience freedom and reignite fun and pleasure in my creativity. And that's pretty amazing."

"When Cirque du Soleil approached me to create a new MC character for Zumanity, I immediately reached out to Shannan. I had the honor of previously being apart of Shannan’s Clown Workshops and knew she was just the person to help tackle such a demanding role. Creating with Shannan is like working with a best friend. I always felt comfortable exposing my raw side which is where all the magic happens when creating. Intention was a huge focus while working with Shannan, making sure we made this new character real, genuine and likable. We re-wrote the entire MC script to fit Axle’s personality and vibe. Within 2 months Axle made his/her debut in Zumanity to a standing ovation. I am forever proud and grateful to have had the experience creating Axle with such an incredibly talented coach. Thank you Shannan."
