Shanese joined Moves and Grooves in the summer of 2010. She was looking for a sense of belonging and found just that in the Ladies Of Purpose mentoring program. Through that program she was introduced to pageantry.

Fast forward to 2012, with the help of Moves and Grooves and her pageant mentor Tiffany Love- Harden. Shanese won the title of Miss Tennessee Teen USA.

Her success only continues from there, as this past year Shanese graduated with honors from Savannah College of Art and Design in Savannah, Georgia.

Success stories like these demonstrate that you can do anything you put your mind to with hard work, determination and mentorship. Our alumni are living proof of that. Help Moves & Grooves create more opportunities to help children discover their full potential.

Moves & Grooves is here to help.

We don’t just care about DANCE.
We care about the WHOLE child.
