Brandon “Bshaw” Shaw


Bshaw has always had a love and passion for dance. As a child growing up in Pasadena, California, he would mimic the styles of pop dance icons like: Michael Jackson and MC Hammer. It wasn’t until he found out that his parents had met and danced on the world renowned television show, “Soul Train”, that his love for dance would turn into a full blown obsession.


It was a dream come true for Bshaw when he got the opportunity to tour the world with R&B sensation, Chris Brown. Bshaw’s most recent accomplishments in dance include: Beyonce', Destiny's Child, Usher, and Chris Brown.

With a ton of success in professional dancing, Bshaw took his vast knowledge in dance into to the world of Choreography.
His most recent accomplishments in choreography for film and television include: Step Up “ ALL IN” , DISNEY CHANNEL ORIGINAL MOVIE's "Let It Shine" ,"Lemonade Mouth", DISNEY CHANNEL's "So Random", "Shake it up” and "Austin and Alley”. He has also worked as an Associate Choreographer with Chris Scott on FOX's hit television series "So You Think You Can Dance" and the Supervising Choreographer on Chris Brown's "Forever European Tour".

With a passion for dance and always wanting to give back, Bshaw took all his expertise in the world of dance and entertainment and created an training experience for his students called "Hip- Hop basics " which is geared towards the novice dancer looking to learn the basic foundation and “Tourography”. Tourography is where students feel what it is like to dance, rehearse and even perform on stage as if they were on TOUR. It’s high energy, intense, and hard hitting syllabus that has been in high demand and taught in several countries. Bshaw truly loves what he does and it shows in his work ethic and drive.

Brandon is one of the most skillful and talented teachers I’ve had. His wealthy knowledge packaged with his passion for teaching has made each lesson a memorable one. My skill sets and dance performance has increased incredibly since training with Brandon!
I look forward to continue training with him and I would also highly recommend him. Not only is he great with teaching, but he’s great at knowing how to teach all dance backgrounds, abilities and genders. He’s a rare gem because not all teachers have the ability to train literally anyone!!!

Thank you Brandon for your knowledge and constantly pushing me to be great! :)
