Shahnel Woodley


Shahnel1Shahnel Woodley began dancing with United Dance Productions in 1993.  She trained in Ballet, Tap, Jazz, Modern, Hip Hop, and African Dance.  Her experiences travelling with the UDP Jr. Company is what truly ignited her passion for the arts.

While it was Shahnel’s dream to become a ballerina on the world stage, she believes that everything falls into place as it should, and that her love for dance and affecting the lives of others have intertwined during her time as a dance teacher.

Shahnel then ventured off to college on a track and field scholarship, receiving her Bachelor’s Degree in Clinical Social Work (Phi Theta Kappa Honor Society). She credits the discipline of dance for setting the foundation for individuality, respect, positive competition, strength, obedience and poise.  Her ultimate goal as a dance teacher is to influence each student to reach his/her full potential as a dancer, and to encourage them to embark on a path of success in all of their endeavors.

She currently teaches Ballet and Jazz.
