Danielle Raffaele has been dancing since the tender age of two years old, starting her dance journey in the classic styles of ballet, jazz, tap and musical theatre. Upon arriving at TDC in 2011 she fell in love with the urban styles of contemporary and hip hop and has not looked back since. Working hard for the pre-elementary scholarship in 2012 opened up the opportunity for her to assist and later teach her most beloved style; hip-hop. Danielle is a corporate dancer, performing at events including The Master Builder Construction Awards, German Business Ball, Amana Living Awards, Flight Centre Awards and Oasis Media Ball. She has facilitated dance workshops for schools, playgroups and 140 Perth. She has recently ventured to Karratha, teaching hip hop workshops as part of the Red Earth Arts Festival and worked alongside producers at the AFL as part of the online Players Garage series. Danielle studies full time at The University of Notre Dame, completing a Bachelor of Media and Communications majoring in Journalism. She believes strongly in the power of the arts and its ability to improve confidence, bring people together and improve mental health.
