Nathan Shaw

Choreographic Mentor


Nathan Shaw was a member of the Judge Memorial Arts department since 2011 and in summer of 2022 was named the Director of Admissions & Activities.

A passion for performing arts is evident in Mr. Shaw’s own background as a gifted actor, singer, and dancer. One of his most memorable moments in high school came when he was a senior and earned the lead role of Charlie Brown in his school’s musical, You’re A Good Man Charlie Brown. This experience would motivate him to pursue an education and career in the performing arts. He went on to appear in shows for Salt Lake Acting Company, Utah Symphony and Opera, and the Egyptian Theater. He served as a company member of Repertory Dance Theatre for over seven years and has been performing with SBDance for over 10 years.  Many may observe that Mr. Shaw’s love for teaching is even greater than his love of performing. Prior to teaching at Judge Memorial, he taught for Children’s Dance Theater, the Tanner Dance Program, and served as adjunct faculty for both Salt Lake Community College and Utah Valley University.
