Shiveley worked in management at Oracle Corporation for a decade and has served on several nonprofit boards. But earlier, she had extensive ballet training. Growing up in Berkeley, she admired Lowe’s work as principal dancer and choreographer with Oakland Ballet. Lowe has worked with numerous prestigious dance companies and with such legendary choreographers as Agnes de Mille. Shiveley says, “I didn’t meet Michael until seven years ago, but he had always been in my head as a local dance legend. He has such authenticity in his work. He’s sort of the sensei in the room. But he’s also the greatest student of dance I’ve ever seen. He goes out and sees absolutely every thing that’s being performed in the Bay Area. What he’s presenting is fresh and original, but also taking a temperature of what people seem to be interested in, what entertains them, without adding a lot of fluff.”.
