Shannen Healy has loved to sing from a young age. Growing up in a home filled with music, movies, and art, Shannen discovered a love for the arts at just five-years old, when her parents took her to her first Broadway show. She began performing at the age of six, making her stage debut in The Wizard of Oz as a Munchkin, and has had a passion for theatre ever since. Shannen began her professional vocal training at age 12, studying with acclaimed Manhattan voice teacher, Justin Stoney. She was fortunate to attend one of New York’s esteemed performing arts high schools, Professional Children’s School. During her Junior and Senior year, Shannen was one of the few students to be selected to perform at Lincoln Center’s annual Winter’s Eve Showcase. Upon graduating, Shannen attended Circle in the Square Theatre School, a conservatory located in Manhattan’s Theatre District. During her time at Circle in the Square, Shannen trained intensively in Musical Theatre. Eager to complete her BFA, Shannen studied at Berklee College of Music, earning a degree in Vocal Performance. During her time with Berklee, Shannen was honored to have had the opportunity to participate in a semester-long collaboration with the Juilliard School, training in the vocal department under Master Teacher Jane Olian.
In addition to continuing to perform professionally, Shannen has discovered a passion for teaching. Her greatest joy is seeing the same passion that she has for the performing arts in her students. Having the opportunity to not only allow that passion to grow, but also provide her students with the tools they need to have a strong, successful life in the arts, is an honor. Shannen is thrilled to be joining the Infinite Motion family!
