Bounce is a HIGHLY versatile dancer with so much expertise to offer. Not only does she know her craft, but she feels it. Her passion is as bright as day. No matter the style, environment, or project, she puts her whole heart into it and it shows consistently. Capturing her is like watching water move — flowing with no resistance. Shirjuanda "Bounce" Woodson is a force to be reckoned with. No doubt about it.

I am very tempted to print this email out and put it on my wall! Lol! Wow your words means a lot to me! You don’t always get that kind of feedback from people you work for as an artist. So I want to TRULY thank you for sharing that with me! You know so much about this commerical/dance world…and yet you’re so young!! I’m like how does she do it?! LOL! But yes I can’t wait to work together again either! Let’s keep in touch!

Thank you soooo much!  I appreciate you and that opportunity so much, I had a lot of fun and learned a lot in the process. You are super talented and made everything come together in a perfect way. You have such a positive and free spirit that makes it really fun and cool to work with you. Seeing you support Shàri like that is really inspiring and touching. I hope we can work together again soon, I got nothing but good memories and vibes from this experience. Keep doing your thing at the west coast in the meantime! Big hug!

Shirjay aka Bounce!! Lol

I thank you truly. You have open my eyes and pushed the "Get on Your Grind" button for me. You are absolutely teaching me and helping me grow in ways you don't know. Working with you has been amazing. You and Shári are truly blessed and have blessed me. Working with you has brought back memories and glad we got to actually finish a project together too (yAy)... You have supported me and of course I shall continue to support you. I can't wait to work and dance with you again in the near future. Stay Blessed!

Ciao Amore bello!!!

There's so much to say that it wouldn't fit in this testimonial, but know that it was a pleasure and a joy to work with you again and all the other incredible people. I've been struggling a bit trying to get a job and fitting all things together, its been pretty hard but this experience reminded me why I do what I do and why I love it so much. I'm glad you appreciated my Loud Italian Spirit, when I get to dance and make other people smile, feel, I can say I am truly accomplished then.  If you ever need a dancer, a friend, a big hug or some Italian laughs you know where to find me. I'm lucky to have you and can't wait to see what's next for us. You're a bright light and an amazing artist, don't ever forget that.

Love you looooots sister, ti voglio bene amica.

Con amore!

First off, I've known ShirJuanda aka Bounce since 2010 at the Alvin Ailey Summer Intensive and she has grown into an outstanding dancer, choreographer, entrepreneur, mentor, and woman! I have been blessed to re-connect with her since my move to Dallas in 2015 and be a part of her Bounce Family Cookout 90s video and again in LA with the Hooverkicks commerical! Bounce is such a humble and intellectual person, that she brings out the best dancer and performer within yourself. She keeps it real no matter what with constructive criticism to better help your future. I know God has plans for her and I am honored to have worked with my friend and look forward too many more! Love you ShirJuanda! God bless you!

A BIG thank you goes to you for giving me this opportunity and making this happen!!! I loved every minute of it and I can't wait to see the video!!!! I can't wait to work with you again and share the stage, the space and days with you!!! 

Lots of love and I'm sorry if I wrote only this but I'm just SPEECHLESS!!!

I am happy to speak on the virtues of the wonderful ShirJuanda "Bounce" Woodson. Her skills as a performer, choreographer, and teacher are unmatched! However, I will say that her other traits -  easygoing manner, eagerness to engage, work, succeed and help others succeed - run neck-and-neck with those skills. In fact, Bounce's dedication to performance excellence, arts education, and community involvement are likely what makes her winner in life. 


I was once told something about finding meaning in life that I will never forget: You can tell when you have heard your life's calling when, in pursuing it, you bless others. Bounce is indeed living a meaningful life, leaving others blessed wherever she goes. So many have found new passion, increased ability, joy and more as a result of working with Bounce. Actually, I get "booster shots" of joy just talking with her. I cannot wait to work with her again!
