Shea assisted Mr. LeTang on many projects and taught along side of him until his passing in April '07.

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.”
