Gregory Hines had this to say about Shea Sullivan: “Shea Sullivan is part of the new breed of tap dancer/choreographer, who can dazzle with speed or funk….but she also has her roots in the great, back-in-the-day classic style of masters like Henry LeTang and Eleanor Powell. Shea can do it all.” Visit Shea at www.SheaSullivan.com.
