Shannon Lee Jones

Dance Faculty

Shannon moved to Boston six years ago after living in NYC where she worked professionally, appearing on Broadway, in several national and international tours, Off Broadway and in regional theatre. 

She is particularly proud to be an associate of the Barrow Group, a Drama Desk award winning Off Broadway Theatre Company.

In 2003, Shannon was experiencing chronic back pain as a result of her years of dancing. The pain became so severe that she could no longer work in the theatre. She sought out relief through a variety of modalities, and eventually, she went to see a back surgeon at Beth Israel Hospital in New York who told her about the Alexander Technique.  After studying the technique in New York, she and her husband moved to Boston and she decided to pursue certification in the Alexander Technique and study with Tommy Thompson in Cambridge.  

The Alexander technique has become a way of life for Shannon and she has returned to performing professionally in musical theatre throughout the Boston area.  Shannon was just nominated for a 2010 IRNE (Independent Reviewers of New England) for her performance as the Bakers Wife in “Into The Woods” starring Rachael York.
