MISS DANNI     MISS SUSY

 
 

 

Miss Danni, as she is known by her students, has been teaching dance in the Hamilton area for over 20 years. Being a very shy child, her parents enrolled her in dancing at the ago of 4 to build up her confidence and she has been dancing ever since. She has had extensive training in ballet, jazz, tap, modern, highland, hip hop, musical theatre and various kinds of ethnic dancing. Miss Danni has studied dance at Ryerson University under such illustrious teachers as Nadia Potts (former principal dancer with the National Ballet), Stelio Calagias, Vicki St. Denys, Audrey Locher, Flora Lojekova (former principal dancer with the Kirov Ballet) and Karen Duplisea (Toronto Dance Theatre). She has performed in shows choreographed by Malcolm Gale, Timothy Spain (Royal Winnipeg Ballet), and Vicki St. Denys as a soloist and Dance Captain.

While at Ryerson, Miss Danni was also fortunate to have been selected as one of six dancers to perform in "Ten Lost Years" which was directed by Keith Batten, who is well known for being the executive producer of the successful run of "Miss Saigon" and "Les Misérables" (touring). Some other highlights include performing in "Sweet Charity", directed by John Sharpe (assistant choreographer for Bob Fosse) and an award-winning performance for "Jerry's Girls".

Miss Danni has participated in over 500 live performances with her dancing and garnered many awards during her career. One of the most memorable accolades was being one of only three Ontario students awarded the Ann Watts Memorial Scholarship through the Sears Drama Festival in high school.

While dancing has always been Miss Danni's passion, she is also a fully certified aerobics instructor and personal trainer. She was a manager for several prominent fitness centres before taking over from Marilyn Szwec at the studio.

Miss Danni believes that everyone can benefit from dancing. Not only are there physical rewards, but increased confidence, self-esteem and life lessons can be obtained from a dance education. Having two sons of her own, she realizes the importance of extra-curricular activities for children and adults. Not only is the studio a spot to have fun but it is also a place where you can become skilled at dealing with others while learning to believe in yourself and your abilities.
