Originally from California, Dani has joined our team in Nashville teaching Dance Fitness, Bounce, and BarreAmped classes. She believes that the way you work out should be fun and loves to get her class smiling and sweating!
She holds her Bachelors of Fine Arts in Dance with a minor in Business from the University of California, Irvine. She has taught various dance styles to multiple levels and ages across the country. At the age of 16, Dani, first discovered that her passion was not just performing and dancing, but also teaching others. She has taught ages 3 – 88 years old. It is never too late to start dancing — it’s the best kind of workout! Some of her former students have won national dance competitions in ballet, jazz, and song-pom, and some are now dancing professionally — including one as an NFL cheerleader.
As a performer, Dani has danced professionally with ballet companies, on board Celebrity Cruises, and toured the U.S. with the Utah Ballroom Dance Company, just to name a few.
Dani is excited to bring dance fitness classes to Studio 51st. She looks forward to growing the program and offering Dance Technique, Dance Choreo, and Dance Cardio classes.
She was drawn to BarreAmped because of the mind-body awareness needed throughout class. She loves being able to focus at the barre in her ballet classes and has been doing Pilates since high school to help build her core strength. The first time she took a BarreAmped class she felt at home and knew she wanted to learn and share the technique.
Dani is excited to also be teaching Bounce, our new rebounder class at Studio 51st. Her love of grooving to music is released on the mini trampolines to get you sweating and having fun!
