Reagan Shenk

Reagan Shenk grew up in San Diego California. She began dance at the age of 5 and started competing at the age of 7. She trained in Ballet, tap, jazz, gymnastics, lyrical and hip hop. For 5 years in a row while Reagan competed with her dance team, her studio was titled “best in the west” from Showstoppers national Dance competition. At age 14 she stared teaching her own dance classes at another local studio that was just starting off. While still teaching, Reagan began high school and decided to take a break from dance to pursue competitive cheer leading. She joined her High School varsity team and the Mavericks all star CO-ED cheer team. Both teams traveled across the US winning national titles and taking both the UCA and NCA top awards. In 2001 Reagan was named top UCA cheerleader and tumbler/jumper in California. She was invited to become a part of the UCA staff but decided to continue college in San Diego instead. While in college she auditioned for a dance troupe named Fusion Force choreographed by Tessandra Chavez and other top choreographers. Fusion Force is a dance troupe in Southern California that performs for charitable events specializing in Hip Hop and contemporary dance. They also performed nightly at Sea world for their special events. While on the team Reagan was asked to choreograph a contemporary piece to perform at a televised awards show.

Reagan was still teaching and performing in SD when she met her husband who is in the navy. After being together for a year, they got married and the navy moved them to Florida. Reagan began teaching at a local studio working with their competition teams. Her choreography won top titles and her production of the Mask won a national title. In 2008 Reagan and her family were stationed in Memphis TN where she began teaching at two studios. She taught jazz, contemporary, acro, hip hop, ballet and tap. Both studios brought home Platinum awards and special titles from multiple competitions.

She recently moved to Colorado with her husband and two daughters Kenna and Kallie. Kenna just joined the MDF petite team and wants to become a dancer just like her mother. She will continue to share her love of all types of dance with the student of MDF.
