He has also become a regular teacher at Debbie Reynold’s Dance Studio, IDA Hollywood, Edge PAC and Boogiezone.
  • 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 as well.
  • Shields has also performed onstage and on camera alongside Mariah Carey, Chris Brown, Will Smith, Kelis, 50 Cent, Lil Mama, and assisted/embarked on two World Tours with Latin Pop Icon, Chayanne!
