Since the first time Markus Shields set foot into rehearsal he developed an instant passion for dance and choreography. Thus, just one year later, he began creating award-winning numbers for national and international competitions.
Soon thereafter, Markus moved from the Midwest to Los Angeles and has since built working relationships with choreographers Wade Robson, Tricia Miranda, Frank Gatson, Parris Goebel, Charm La’Donna, and more. He has also become a regular teacher at Millennium Dance Complex, Debbie Reynold's Dance Studio, Edge PAC and other prominent studios in LA as well as becoming an international master instructor.
While represented by Bloc Talent Agency as a dancer/choreographer he has starred in ads for JW Marriott, Amtrak and choreographed a commercial for eBay. Shields has also performed onstage and camera alongside Mariah Carey, Kendrick Lamar, Will Smith, Kelis, Lil Mama and more, as well as embarked on two World Tours with Latin Pop Icon, Chayanne!
All in all, Markus has and always strived to be a great creator. Whether choreographing for a studio or a world tour, creative directing for personal projects or recording artists, or any other facets of entertainment he always put his heart inside of his work.
