She is a 2016 Graduate of East Carolina University with a BFA in Dance Performance, a BS in Rehabilitation Studies, and a minor in Drug and Alcohol Studies. She has worked with Koresh Dance, Zalman Raffael, and Joe Joe Smith. In 2014, she performed at the John F. Kennedy Center in Washington D.C. at the National College Dance Festival for Choreographer John Dixon. She has worked on staff at the Joffrey Ballet School in New York City in the summer for 3 years, getting the opportunity to train with their faculty. Danie accumulates lots of joy teaching and sharing dance with young minds, and does so in the surrounding Chicagoland area. She is thrilled to continue her love and passion as a first year Performing Apprentice member and is grateful the love and support from friends and family.
