Danielle is a New Jersey native who transplanted to Ohio for college in 2009, and now calls Cleveland home. She has been dancing for over 17 years at various studios in NJ, NY, and PA ; but after sustaining knee injuries in 2007, decided to dance only recreationally, and become a nurse.  

Danielle was certified as a Beyond Barre instructor in March 2013, finding that it was a great complement to her regular yoga practice. She finds barre classes to be a great way to condition, while keeping joints safe, and muscles long and lean. Her classes are upbeat, with a focus on correct positioning, alignment and lots of blissful stretching. Be prepared to sweat, and work muscles to fatigue in her one hour full body conditioning class!
