Shannon Dooley is the founder of ‘Retrosweat’ – an
80s-inspired fitness aerobics class where people can
dance and release their inhibitions. Shannon herself
encapsulates Retrosweat: she is a confident, colourful
and engaging presence who knows how to have fun.
When Shannon was seventeen her hair fell out without
warning, in a matter of days. She was subsequently
diagnosed with alopecia universalis, an incurable
condition. And while this has caused some emotional
turmoil in the past, now Shannon doesn’t let anything
get in her way.
