Danny started dancing and competing at the tender age of 8. By 18 years old, he was already a very successful and accomplished young dancer and decided to further his dancing career in England. His passion was always Ballroom Dancing. He had a vision and a dream and never gave up on it.

Throughout his amateur career he worked as a kindergarten teacher in a daycare. He has always loved children and is a father of 3 beautiful girls who are his pride and joy.

In Danny’s 30-year competitive career, he has won the North American Amateur Ballroom Champion, the coveted title of Canadian National Amateur Ballroom Champion, the North American Professional Ballroom Championship, the Professional Canadian National Ballroom Championship and made the prestigious World Professional Show Dance Final - ranking 4th in the World.

After a very successful career, Danny retired from Competitive Ballroom Dancing and dedicated his time coaching, lecturing, and adjudicating and teaching - his true passion. He has coached and taught many dancers across the USA and Canada. Under his tutelage, many have become Amateur, Professional National and International Champions. He has also been coaching ice dancers for the last 25 years.

Danny also created the Dance Company New York Dance Force. A group of very talented young dancers from New York who were delivering the most artistic and flamboyant choreography as a team on many occasions and stages across Canada and USA.

Well known for his creative instincts and show dance experience, Danny was invited to choreograph on the popular TV program So You Think You Can Dance Canada where he created beautiful masterpieces for young dancers of different dance backgrounds.

Danny is a fully certified Ballroom Dance Judge and a Canadian National and World Championship adjudicator. He offers his services in English and French and is currently teaching at 1574 Walkley Road in Ottawa.
