Born a nerd with a love for computers, Dani never saw herself on a stage; however, after studying under the incredible teachers at ArtsYOUniversity and Ballet Technique, dance quickly became her passion. Soon after graduating from ArtsYOU, she continued her training in New York City through programs at Steps on Broadway, Complexions Contemporary Ballet, and Synthesis Dance Project. Dani is also a graduate of Broadway Dance Center’s Professional Semester.
Some of Dani's performing credits include Hasbro's national television commercial for Britney Spears' Twister Dance Rave, BC-EFA's Gypsy of the Year with the cast of Spider-Man: Turn Off the Dark, American Airlines Flash Mob, Good Morning America "Wedding in a Flash", Children's Hospital of Philadelphia's "Monster Mash", and Romeo and Juliet the Musical (Dream Juliet). She has worked with choreographer Al Blackstone (So You Think You Can Dance, Capezio ACE Award-winner) dancing in Capezio's Fashion Show 2014 and assisting him for Capezio's Fashion Show 2015. As an associate choreographer, Dani has worked alongside Rachel Bress (Annie, 9 to 5, The Pirate Queen) on TD Bank's "WOW" Awards (2014, 2015). Her choreography credits include VEEVA's Opening Number, "AC", and "Black and Gold" for VIVA Dance Company.
Dani has a passion for teaching children the knowledge and skills she has learned during her dance journey. She is an ABT® Certified Teacher, who has successfully completed the ABT® Teacher Training Intensive in Pre-Primary through Level Three of the ABT® National Training Curriculum. She is also certified through the Associated Dance Teachers of New Jersey and Simonson Method of Teacher Training course. Dani is a guest teacher at dance studios in the tri-state area as well as for Stage Door Workshops.
When Dani is not twirling in the studio, her fingers are doing their own dance on her laptop. She has kept her nerdy side alive by starting her own website design business - redoU, a company that focuses on helping performing artists and businesses recreate their online brands while staying true to themselves.
