Danielle started dancing at 9 years old at the StarMaker School in Flemington, NJ. After her very first Pom routine to “Come on Ride the Train” in hot pink biker shorts, she was hooked! She joined the studios’ competitive team, the Entertainer’s Baton & Dance Company, when she was 10 & competed in Jazz, Lyrical, Pom, Hip Hop, Ballet, Tap and Baton Twirling. After securing multiple state and national titles, she set her sights on college dance.
The only school Danielle wanted to go to was Towson University to be a part of the national champion Towson University Dance Team. Through four years of some of the most challenging dancing of her life, Danielle was honored to be a part of the team for 4 of their 18 national titles in Division 1 at NDA.
After graduating in 2012 with a degree in social sciences, Danielle has been working in the Tech industry, became a certified Barre fitness instructor and has been dancing professionally with various shows and companies in the DMV area; most recently in a musical theater production for Sax Dinner Theater & Lounge in DC.
In the few minutes she has free between work and dance, Danielle loves to go to the beach, garden, and hang out with her dog, Albie!
