About Shantala Davis

Over some 20 odd years, Shantala Davis has studied Ballet, Jazz, Modern and Partner Dance with Marin Ballet, Dance Arts Studios, The Boston Conservatory, The American Musical and Dramatics Academy and Broadway Dance Center in NYC.

She began a proactive life in partner dancing about 15 years ago competing in Latin, Salsa and Lindy Hop and has recently focused her competition career towards West Coast Swing. Within the past year Shanti has placed 1st in Strictly Swing at Chico Dance Sensation 2011, Capital Swing 2012, Seattle Easter Swing 2012 plus a 1st Place win in Jack & Jill at Michelle Kinkaid's annual event, Mountain Magic. She continues to dance in West Coast Swing competitions throughout the country and has no intentions of slowing down.

Shanti is also a Jr. Professor with West Coast Swing University and strives to share the technique and teachings of Professional Champion, Jason Wayne, combining traditional and contemporary styles in a format easy for new students to understand and learn. From her exposure to many forms of dance, Shanti enjoys the challenge of finding new ways to blend styles and technique into her own unique groove which she shares through her classes and choreography.
