Dancing since age 3, Danaille, now 33 has a vast range of dance experience. She danced in professional studios from age three on, where she competed and attended conventions all over the United States. In addition to studio dance, she was a four-year member of her high school dance team, captain her senior year. Following graduating high school, Danaille attended the University of Wisconsin Oshkosh for three semesters focusing on Elementary Education. Transferring to UWGB her sophomore year she began her independent major in Dance Pedagogy. Danaille interned at a dance studio locally; teaching and choreographing for both competitive, and non-competitive dancers for three years. Establishing her degree in Dance Pedagogy, along with a Human Development minor and certification in athletic coaching, Danaille is the only student from the University of Wisconsin Green Bay to be approved such a unique, and specific degree to attain her career goals. Graduating with honors in May of 2013, she began working to create Danaille’s Dance Academy, in hopes to share her education and passion for dance with dance students for years to come. Four years ago, Danaille completed the Module One Acrobatic Arts Program. She is one of four Dance teachers in the state of Wisconsin certified to teach Acro-Dance. Danaille was also named July's "Terrific Teacher" and appeared on a segment for Channel 5. In her spare time, Danaille spends a great deal of time with her two dogs; Mari (2 Years) & Gretta (10 Years) as well as her nieces. Recently she choreographed for a local Prevea Health commercial, featuring her dancers and Aaron Rodgers. Since opening, she has led DDA to numerous regional and national awards.
I have been with Danaille’s Dance Academy from day one! I became a student at the age of 13, doing all styles of dance including: ballet, pointe, jazz, tap, lyrical, and musical theatre. I was honored to be dancer of the year 2014 and still represent that award each year. Throughout my time in the competition world, I participated in competitions, classes, camps, and was offered a scholarship to continue my dance education from Applause Talent. When I got to high school, I was on the Luxemburg-Casco dance team. I realized after a year of dance team, studio dance is where my heart led and I transferred back to Danaille’s to continue dancing and competing until I graduated. I then became a member of the staff and love it! I graduated last spring with my Bachelors in Human Resource Management. I currently work in Recruiting and put those skills to use at DDA.
Lily has been dancing under Dani since 16 months old. She started her competitive career at age 2.5, with a tap solo. Lily helps out in all aspects of the studio; from answering questions, assisting, cleaning-you name it! Dance has taken her to Hollywood, Florida & surrounding states! Lily is knowledgeable in Ballet, Tap, Jazz, Lyrical/Contemporary, Hip-Hop & Musical Theatre. She always has a smile on her face and a hand to help! Lily just turned 14 years old and attends Denmark High. She is currently a member of the Elite Competition Team. She dreams of attending & dancing for Ohio State University, Go Buckeyes!
Since I was 5 years old, dancing has always been a major part of my life. I have training in tap, ballet, pointe, jazz, and lyrical from First Street Academy of Dance in Menominee, MI. After graduating High School, I knew I didn’t want to give up dancing, therefore I minored in dance in college. Also, I taught dance classes at the Dar Boys & Girls Club. In college I majored in Education. My first year after college graduation I taught 4th grade and now I currently teach kindergarten in my second year of teaching. Dance is something I always wanted to get back into. What better way than to combine my two passions (teaching and dance) than to teach dance classes at Danaille’s Dance Academy! I’m super excited for this new opportunity!
Mari is the studio dog, and never met a face she didn't like! She is trained & very well-mannered. Mari loves to watch her dancers, and be there when they need a boost! She helps lessen anxiety, separation issues, depression-you name it! We love Mari and all she brings to the studio!
