Danielle has been dancing for as long as she can remember and has been working with children for almost as long. Danielle started dancing at the age of four and trained, performed, and competed in ballet, jazz, and lyrical. Following high school, Danielle pursued degrees in her two passions, dance and teaching. During her time at York University, Danielle deepened her study of the art form and was introduced to and fell in love with modern dance. Following university, Danielle continued to train while turning her focus to teaching in the public school system where she loves to weave dance and the arts into her classes. Danielle is excited to have the opportunity to teach at On Stage where she can work with children in the subject she loves the most.
