Response from Shannon Bishop:
Thank you for the nice review and thank you so much for inviting me to perform at your event! I was happy to be a part of it.
I had Shannon at my husband's 50th Birthday Party and she did a great performance!!
Shannon was very professional and easy to work with from the start. She and her cohort Krystal dealt with less than ideal conditions at our barn wedding and surprised our guests with a great performance. Book her with confidence!
A few weeks ago I booked Shannon to perform at my friend's wedding reception. No matter how many times I have seen her perform I am always wowed and surprised by the new choreography and music she puts into her shows. She was very engaging with the guests and she got the party started on a real high. I hope to have the opportunity to hire her for other events.
Very professional, Very friendly, Beautiful dance, Job well done, Would highly recommend
Shannon Bishop is not only a fantastic dancer, she brings people together to experience belly dance with professionalism and flair.
