I had the incredible opportunity to attend Danielle's 2-day Choreography workshop, and I cannot express enough how incredible the experience was. From the moment we stepped into the studio, Danielle's passion and expertise radiated through her teachings, captivating our attention for the entire four hours each day. Time seemed to fly by as we delved deep into the intricacies of dance composition and explored various methods of choreography. Danielle's guidance was exceptional, as she effortlessly broke down complex concepts and techniques, making them accessible to dancers of all levels. We found ourselves amazed at how much we learned within such a short span of time. One of the highlights of the workshop was the exploration of using props and incorporating music into our choreography. Danielle's creative approach and innovative ideas sparked our imaginations and encouraged us to push the boundaries of our artistic expression. The collaborative nature of the class allowed us to witness the brilliance of our fellow dancers, leading to moments of pure joy where we couldn't help but scream with delight at the wonderful creations unfolding before our eyes. Danielle's workshop not only provided us with valuable knowledge and skills in choreography, but it also fostered a sense of community and self-discovery. We left the workshop feeling inspired, empowered, and deeply connected to the art of dance. I cannot recommend Danielle's Choreography workshop enough - it is a transformative experience that will leave you with a newfound appreciation for the beauty and limitless possibilities of dance.
Taking Danielle’s Choreography Workshop this past weekend was life-changing for me. Danielle is above and beyond as a teacher and human being and open to meet you where you are at. As a fairly new dancer myself, I felt safe to bring all of my parts to each part of the workshop (fear, inadequacy, self doubt, play, breathing and doing it anyway, open and inspired). It was extremely out of my comfort zone to even say yes and show up, and Danielle touched my heart deeply with her share in her initial welcome on day one. She spoke into the Threshold we all fear to cross (with creative inspiration), and the epic rewards for taking that leap. She cried as she shared because she feels so passionate about all people crossing that threshold, time and time again. We got to play, dance and learn a lot of great tools and even put together our own pieces, and I kept surprising myself as I opened more so to my own Imagination. What a true honor to share time with Danielle and witness her light up in her genius for 8 hours…I highly recommend taking Danielle’s Choreography Workshop if you feel the nudge…I will definitely be in Workshop 2 whenever it lines up. 🙏
Dance Classes and perfomances
Danielle is amazing! Her classes are challenging for experienced dancers, yet don't exclude the newbies such as myself. Her choreography is engaging and creative. Everything she does is incredible and memorable. Her dance expertise and knowledge of body movement are 2nd to none. She will make you discover muscles you didn't even know you had. Danielle truly is a gift and inspiration to all of her students.

I have had the opportunity to take classes as a student and attend dance festivals with Danielle. She has such a vast expanse of dance knowledge that seems never ending. She is an excellent technique teacher as she gets to the core of “why what you do matters” whether you are learning as a student or taking a choreography class. I love Danielle’s enthusiasm for dance and how she is eager to share this passion with everyone she comes in contact with. It’s been a joy learning from her over the years
I attended Danielle’s choreography workshop without any expectation. Danielle delivered more than I could have ever imagined!
This was a joyous, heart opening , mind expanding, supportive experience. From the first moment until the last , Danielle’s excellent teaching skills, enormous knowledge base and vast imagination taught me dance choreography.
At the end of the first session, we were lovingly challenged to choreograph a dance. I was fearful until Danielle spent time unraveling the intricacies of choreography.
We were introduced to other dance teachers choreography as well as seeing Danielle’s amazing dance creations.
We even had the opportunity to group choreograph using two gifted dancers to create something new and beautiful.
By the end of the workshop, we were all able to choreograph a dance using a prop as inspiration!
I had the pleasure of imagining. dancing , and choreographing with others. What an amazing experience and it seemed to last just a heart beat. I plan to attend more of Danielle’s Choreography workshops in the future.
I highly recommend this to everyone who dances and thinks about choreography.
