About Shirlene Quigley
Shirlene's dance career began at 18 years old, when she danced as one of the original "uhh ohh girls" on Beyonce's "Crazy In Love" music video. The next day she found herself traveling the world with Beyonce promoting her first album "Crazy In Love." You may have seen Shirlene performing on many award shows in America and overseas, such as The Grammy's, VMA's, Teen Choice Awards, BET Awards, BET Black Girls Rock, Essence Awards, Fashion Rocks, NRJ awards, VMA Japan, ESPY Awards, Soul Train awards. As well as television and Talk shows like All My Children, Diva's Live, America's Got Talent, Oprah, The View, Top of the Pops, Jimmy Kimmel Live, TRL, Craig Fergeson, David Letterman, Saturday Night Live, and a national commercial for Pepsi.
While on a break from touring, she wanted to practice her dance moves, and realized none of the commercial dance studios held high heel dance classes. She found it necessary for all female dancers to learn and/or practice in their heels, and really wanted a class that would cater to this need. She then decided that she would be the one to make this happen. With her knowledge and extensive experience, Shirlene began the first 'high heel dance class' at world famous Millennium Dance Complex, in her hometown of Los Angeles. She has now brought it to New york City, teaching at Broadway Dance Center, Ailey Extension and Peridance. Along with teaching at workshops around the world, in Europe, Asia, South America, Canada, and the Middle East.
