After doing shows, lectures, and performances across the country with many big names such as Johnson and Johnson/ Ethicon, NBC, and at the Monte Carlo resort in Las Vegas with World Promotions, Shannon has easily demonstrated that she is one of the very best eventscoordinators we have encountered. We have worked with her numerous times and her professionalism, work ethic, resourcefulness, and creative eye makes for an outstanding event every time. Anyone who wishes to produce a first class show would benefit greatly from Shannon's expertise.

9/12/2010 I have worked with Shannon Knauss for about four years and have always had a great time doing it. She has always helped me find work in the field of dance and entertainment and took pride in doing it. Her vision of creating strong and powerful women as dancers is inspiring. She will be a success at whatever she does due to her perseverance, talent and years of experience! Pamela Turpen. Professional Dancer & Choreographer, 5th Avenue Theater

2010- I have worked with Shannon since year 2002, throughout the years Shannon has been a great pleasure to work with, her enthusiasm and passion for dance is contagious. She is very professional, reliable, dedicated and loyal to everyone that works for her. Shannon had hired me for many jobs and all the events have been amazing, with the highest standards and class. She always ensured that we are treated right and respectful. She has been an amazing support and a great coach, a wonderful person.
I respect and love working with Shannon Knauss and would highly recommend her.
Sincerely,
Natalya Snetkova,
GoGo Dancer & Model

Time and time again Shannon has delivered for me as a go between on gigs and events. As a dancer (and a Type A personality) I need to arrive on time, prepared with the proper gear and information, and know the details of my job requirements by the event organizer. I always know that Shannon will have my back and prepare me accordingly. She is reliable, knowledgeable, and creative, always pushing the boundaries and thirsty for something new.
Thank you for your attention to detail and the love you show ALL of your dancers whether veteran or newbie. I have complete faith that any job I do with Seattle GoGo will be fun, adventurous, well-planned, and professional.

In my nearly 8 years experience working for and with Shannon Knauss I have always been impressed by her enthusiasm and love of the art of dance. She has a passion for finding and studying new forms of movement as well as experimenting with costumes hair and makeup. What ever the project, she's always willing to go the extra mile to make sure it dazzles! Shannon never dumbs it down, but steps it up & helps you rise to the challenge. On opening night (even if she's just coming to show support) Shannon is always front row with a congratulatory bouquet. She's the kind of caring, wonderful fun woman you'd want in your corner. I wouldn't trade my experiences dancing with her for anything in the world!

When I met Shannon Knauss 8 years ago I knew we'd work together for a very long time. Her professionalism in the dance industry shines with every new venture and the enthusiasm she exudes for dancing is truly contagious. I have worked with many a dancer, instructor and student and Shannon's experience and expertise with a variety of dance styles is second to none. Shannon's eye for talent and her supportiveness over the years never ceases to amaze me. Simply put, she's fabulous. xo Summer
