Danielle has danced in several projects and Companies in Europa and recently in Australia. Her passion for dance is her drive in life and makes her the artist she is today.
Danielle’s love for dance began in Cape Town, South Africa. As a child she was chosen to perform in stage productions and the thrill of dancing for an audience has never left her.
After moving to England in 2001, she won numerous awards in Eisteddfods and national competitions and participated in classes at The Royal Ballet School, London. At the age of sixteen, she auditioned successfully for the Rambert School of Ballet and Contemporary Dance, where she had the opportunity to work with international choreographers and danced her own solo piece ‘Great Expectations’ at the Royal Opera House. After graduating in 2012 with a BA(Hons) degree, she went on to perform with dance companies mainly based in the North East of England. She worked collaboratively with other dance artists to create unique, innovative, experimental dance works. She was chosen by the artistic director of Company of Others to perform as the soloist at Billingham International Folk Festival, where she was able to dance with companies from around the world.
When she arrived on the beautiful Sunshine Coast in January 2015, she soon started teaching dance, mainly ballet, jazz and tap and has enjoyed every moment of it. Danielle has been a company member of Neo Vida since August 2017. She shares our vision of bringing dance to the wider community through creating pieces that are cultural, inclusive and that increase awareness of historical or current issues.
Georgie has danced with various dance schools and choreographers throughout her training. Trained in Ballet, Contemporary, Jazz, Tap, Hip-hop, Lyrical, Acrobatics and Musical theatre, she has completed exams and competed in eisteddfods all around Australia.
Currently, she is teaching in jazz, tap, ballet and several performing troupes, which perform at the Sunshine Coast eisteddfods. Georgie has been part of Neo Vida since April 2017 and shared her passion and love for dance.
It is a delight to have her part of our company and we can’t wait to perform together.
