Dani started dancing at the age of 13 as a member of Cesar Chavez Middle School Color Guard, but it was in high school that she truly fell in love with dance and began her serious pursuit of dance as a career. With advanced training in a wide range of styles, including contemporary, jazz, modern, lyrical, tap, ballet, musical theatre, and hip-hop, Danielle brings a formidable combination of passion, technical skills, and creative energy to the Montage classroom.
In 2011, Dani joined Bliss Contemporary Dance Company at Ohlone College and was featured in their production of “Fashion Provoked!” as both a dancer and choreographer. She also performed with iLLusion Dance Company in their production “I”.
While Dani's focus and love has been contemporary dance, she continues to develop her versatility as a dancer and most recently ventured into urban hip hop, where her talent and leadership abilities were quickly recognized. She was the co-captain of VIP San Jose, a major Bay Area dance company founded by Krisuan Rosalejos.
Dani graduated from San Jose State University in their Dance Program with the goal of refining her artistry as a choreographer.
