Her nurturing and sensitive support of each individual translates to all areas of her work. By motivating and inspiring participants she instils them with confidence which ignites their creativity and enhances their skills. Danielle's experience encompasses a wide range of settings including integrated dance delivery, dance for healthcare and hospital settings, creative, cross curriculum and repertoire based school projects, ballet classes and contemporary technique classes for all ages and experiences.
Danielle creates original works as well as directing projects inspired by existing choreography. Her previous commissions have included intergenerational groups, schools, site specific work and large scale, multifaceted community projects. Her work is dynamic, celebratory and accessible. Danielle is distinctly musical and as a choreographer often uses her musicality as a starting point for her work. With all dancers including young people, older dancers, professionals dancers and community groups she uses the same approach of encouraging unique and individual movement responses; as well as supporting them to take responsibility for their engagement with her work. Danielle delivers choreographic workshops as well as performance work and has recently been exploring practice as research as a strand of choreographic engagement with community participants.
