Our Message

The idea that we are all born with great and valuable gifts is how the name Born 2 Danz came about.  Empowering individuals to express those gifts through the performing arts is our mission.

Shanie Marshall – Owner/Director - Dance Instructor & Performer


Born 2 Danz Founder, Shanie Marshall, has always had a passion for dance.  She excelled in all athletics growing up, winning numerous honors along the way. However, her heart was always in dance.  As an adult she's been able to follow her dreams of dance and share that dream and passion with others.
Her original choreography placed her team in the top 10 of an International dance competition in 2012.  She was a top 10 finalist in a Regional Dance Fitness Instructor competition that reached across South Carolina, Tennessee and Georgia in 2013. She was featured on Missy Kane's Fit and Fun Show and chosen Best Dance Instructor in Monroe County by the People's Choice Awards in the Advocate Democrat Newspaper.  She loves passing the joy of dance to others!!
