Get to Know Shannon

How many years have you spent on the team?
My name's Shannon and this is my first year.

Are you in school?
I go to school at the U of M full-time and I also have a waitress job.

What do you do in your free time?
When I do have free time I love going out to dinner. It's my favorite thing to do.

Who is your favorite athlete?
I'd probably have to say Kevin Love. Everybody is fun to watch, but it's just especially fun to watch him, because you can tell how much he loves the game.

What's your favorite part about being a dancer?
Intros, when the lights go down and the moon comes out and stepping on court waiting for your music to start is just the best feeling.

What are your goals as a dancer?
I think it's really important to just keep getting better, so dance-wise I think it's important to have that Timberwolves Dancer style, but especially to come out of my shell and find my own style as much as I can.

Do you have any advice for other dancers?
When I first tried out there were so many girls, really good dancers and I honestly was like, I don't know if I can do this, there's a ton of girls, but I wanted it and I worked really hard. I know a lot of the girls have tried out more than once and if you want something just keep working at it and do your best.
