MEET KYLE SHEA
Kyle Thomas Shea is a native resident of San Francisco, California. He started dancing at the age of 2 with his older brother watching Janet, Michael, and TLC music videos and learning on his own. In high school he got his first taste of choreography and he loved creating bits and pieces of choreography to his favorite music. In 2005 he joined the Funksters Summer Intensive camp which was led by Mariel Martin, Gloryzen Mendoza, and Emerson Aquino. From there on he pursued dance and choreography with Funksters, the youth training company of Funkanometry SF, up until 2008. As a member of Funksters, Kyle learned the history of this amazing dance community, became a more well rounded dancer, and made choreography for the company as well. Mariel Martin and Gloryzen Mendoza played a huge role in shaping him as a dancer and as a human being and he could never ever thank them more. In 2009, Kyle became an Artistic Coordinator for the Funkbrella's collegiate competitive team, The Odds. Working with The Odds has pushed him to be a more conscious leader and choreographer and he is trying to better his team everyday through his love and passion for dance and music. He is also MAD excited to teach Boogiezone and is so honored for the opportunity! His style incorporates whatever he's feeling, a little bit of Kylie Minogue, and maybe some old 80's rock or maybe some booty shaking and hard ish. You never know...Kyle always tries to have fun in what he does.
