Danielle is the pied piper of Dance!!! Dancers hang onto her every word because they come from the heart. She has been there and is living the words she speaks.
David Cooper- Photographer
I've hired Danielle several times now for my Dance Photography Workshops. (link)
Danielle has always been one of my favorite dancers to experiment with light and movement. She brings a brilliant smile and such positive and playful energy to the studio. Danielle has such beautiful lines and can fly through the air as many times as I need her to repeat a jump. I recommended her to the famous National Geographic photographer, Joe McNally last year. He created a photo training video for dance photography and she can be seen on the cover page of his site. He loved working with her.
Danielle is the ultimate professional who never complains after a long day's work and provides lots of creativity to any shoot.

My Daughter has grown as a dancer under your guidance - and in such a short time! Her dance teachers have noticed the change in her - more confidence especially in improvisation, understanding the music and putting it into emotion.
