"We are SO glad we took a dance lesson with Dani before our wedding.  We were not comfortable/hadn't ever danced together before the lesson and we left feeling 100x better about our first dance.  High recommend for couples getting married who may need some dancing tips!"

"Dani coached my husband, Matt, and me for our first dance at our wedding.  She did an amazing job and even coached some dance lessons via video chat!  She was easy to work with and a talented dance teacher.   We had a beautiful first dance at our wedding and we owe that to Dani!"

"I had my first dance class with Dani to prepare for the Mother Son Wedding Dance and I surprisingly think that I might be trainable.  I sincerely had my doubts, but Dani is not only fun and adorable but actually was able to get me to do a few dance moves without falling flat on my face!! Thanks!"

I'm Dani.

Born and raised in Northern California, I bring over 15 years of professional dance experience and teaching expertise to weddings nationwide.  I hold a B.F.A. in Dance from the University of California - Irvine. I have a diverse background performing with Celebrity Cruises, ballet companies, and touring with the Utah Ballroom Dance Company. I now reside in Lexington, KY, with my husband and dog, Yadi. 

As an experienced dancer and coach, I’m passionate about helping others feel confident on the dance floor, preparing them for shows, competitions, or perfecting their technique. With a focus on creating magical moments, I started assisting friends with their first dance and father/daughter dances in Los Angeles over a decade ago. Working with clients of all ages and skill levels, I enjoy understanding individual learning styles and witnessing the growth and confidence of mastering new dance moves. Whether you're seeking a single lesson or a fully choreographed dance, I’m excited to work with you, create unforgettable memories, and help you acquire a new skill set.
When I'm not teaching dance, you can find me helping people achieve their goals through barre, pilates, and rebounding. Learn more about my fitness options here!
