When you think of ballroom dancing, what comes to mind?
Whatever picture was just in your head, it’s probably not what ballroom dancers Shane and Shannon Jensen do. The married duo are decorated ballroom dancing champions, but their style is anything but classic.
Shannon and Shane describe their style as the “new generation” of ballroom dancing. Shannon’s bright red hair and vibrant outfits make her stand out in the industry, but they really don’t need the showy costumes, because the couple is seriously talented.
The Jensen’s have won multiple championships around the world, and have held titles including British Open Invitational Cabaret Champions, United States National Professional Cabaret Champions, United States National American Rythm Finalists, Ohio Star Ball Open Professional Cabaret Champions, among many more.
Additionally, Shane and Shannon have made appearances on shows including “America’s Got Talent,” “TODAY,” and “America’s Ballroom Challenge.”
When they perform, they manage to make ballroom look like a mix of acrobatics, figure skating, and dancing all at the same time.
In a performance at the Ohio Star Ball, the Jensens performed in the Theater Arts Showdance portion to Michael Buble’s “Cry Me A River” and completely amazed the audience. With moves like this one, it’s easy to see why!
The couple’s performance was shared on YouTube and viewers have called the routine “fantastic,” “amazing,” and “beautiful” — which is putting it lightly.
Not only does there have to be an immense amount of trust that goes into moves like theirs, but there also has to be chemistry, talent, and a whole lot of practice. They are truly spectacular together!
