She has developed a shadowing and mentoring programme for artists working with dancers with Parkinson's which she has collaborated with People Dancing; Dance for Parkinson's Network and Trinity Laban's Dance & Health Learning Group to offer to emerging artists. She co-leads a yearly Intro to Dance for Parkinson's two day course alongside prominent Dance for PD(R) expert David Leventhal and recently delivered a creative practice and artistry module for the New Adventures Overture programme for community dance artists. She develops INSET workshops in schools and is regularly sought after to deliver specialist dance and health CPD courses, including the innovative CPD programme which she leads as artistic advisor for Dance for Health Rotterdam.
Danielle has worked with various professional artists seeking guidance and support for their teaching and leading skills in the community, with schools and in bespoke settings such as hospitals and care homes. Her communication skills and understanding of pedagogic frameworks mean she can support with a clarity that is appropriate for the individual or group she is working with.
