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

Spencer L.


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

Stephanie B.

"I had my first dance class with Dani 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 moves without falling flat on my face!! Thanks!"

I'm Dani.

I was born and raised in Northern California and have danced professionally and taught across the country for over 15 years.  I hold a B.F.A in Dance from the University of California - Irvine and have danced for Celebrity Cruises, with ballet companies, commercially, and toured with Utah Ballroom Dance Company which eventually landed me competing and training in Nashville, TN then moved to Lexington, KY in October 2019.  


I have a strong passion for teaching and coaching, whether it’s helping someone to feel comfortable dancing on the dance floor, getting them ready for a show or competition, or fine tuning their technique, I love it all.  


I first started to help friends prepare for their first dance and father/daughter dances when I was living in Los Angeles (over 12 years ago).  I realized I really enjoyed being able to help make someone’s big day even more magical. I have worked with clients of all ages and skill levels.  I love figuring out how people learn. It's so rewarding to see someone learn a new move all while having fun and building confidence.  


Whether you want one lesson (for a date night or a last minute crash course) or want a choreographed dance, I look forward to working with you and helping you learn a new skill that will create so many memories!
