EMPRESS (Shannon Rugani)

At just four-years-old, Shannon’s life was changed when her hands touched the black and white keys on a keyboard for the first time. Her love for music evolved into a career as a professional dancer, and she was one of the youngest members of the San Francisco Ballet. As her talents developed, Shannon moved to New York City where she performed on Broadway as the lead in the Tony Award winning production of "An American in Paris". Shannon is a native from South Lake Tahoe California, she trained in the Reno Tahoe area before moving to San Francisco to Join SF Ballet. She has both classical and Balanchine ballet training and is well rounded in jazz, tap, hip hop, lyrical, modern, and character dancing. She has worked with world renowned Choreographers and has danced all over the world including France, Iceland, China, Denmark, England and the United States. Shannon is an accomplished composer on the piano and has written music for a short film called "Freefall" directed by Luke Willis in 2012. Shannon choreographed and stared in the short film "PRIMA" that premiered at the 2012 TriBeCa film Festival. After "An American In Paris" closed in October 2017 Shannon took time away from Broadway and Ballet to focus on her music career as a singer/songwriter performing under the stage name EMPRESS but she’ll never stop dancing.
