MEET MICHELLE CROZIER

SHANNA PORCARI-NYSEN

Michelle the 2015 "Boogie By The Bay Rising Star Championion" love of dancing is only rivaled by her love of music. She has training in Classical piano, musical theater, and partner dancing. She has the most fun when she's able to combine her 

interest by dancing to live music! The creativity and energy that comes from dancing to a live band is something she looks forward to sharing with her students and friends at The Saddle Rack.

Shanna has been teaching social dancing since 2006, and fell in love with west coast swing in 2009.  Her passions are performing and sharing her love of dance.  She can't wait to be teaching at the Saddle Rack.  

She is the 2014 US Open Rising Star champion, and placed 5th in the 2015 US Open Swing Dance Championship Rising Star division. Shanna say's, Come out and dance with me. YAY!!!
