Danielle Mascolo (she/her)

Dance Instructor

Danielle has been dancing for as long as she can remember and has been working with children for almost as long. Danielle took her first dance class at the age of four and was hooked! This class led her to fill her days with training, preparing for exams, performing, and competing as a member of her studio’s dance team.

Following high school, Danielle went to York University where she earned a Bachelor of Education and a Bachelor of Fine Arts in dance. During these years, Danielle was introduced to and fell in love with modern dance and further developed her choreographic voice.

Following university, Danielle continued to train in various dance styles while turning her focus to teaching in the public school system. Danielle has taught dance in public schools with students from kindergarten through grade 12 and is currently the dance teacher at Stratford District Secondary School.
Danielle is thankful to have the opportunity to teach at On Stage where she can work with students in the subject she loves the most at a studio that nurtures and celebrates the love of dance!
