Shawni Jackson (2018-present)
Shawni began dancing at the age of three. I guess you could say she was born to dance since her mom was a professional dancer and her grandmother owned a dance studio. By the age of six she was dancing in the competitive field and by the time she was sixteen she was teaching jazz, tap and ballet to young dancers. Shawni danced competitively through high school and performed as a member of the Orchesis Dance Team at Corona del Mar. CDMHS and Orchesis are very near and dear to her heart. After high school she danced professionally for several years allowing her to travel the world.
She has always had a passion for dance and teaching so she is thrilled to be working with the Orchesis Dance Co. and her alma mater. As the teams current director she hopes to inspire and teach the girls how important it is to be able to give back while pursuing what you love.
Shawni is married to her high school sweetheart, Bill and currently has 3 teenagers of her own who all attend Corona del Mar High School.
