Danielle began studying ballet, modern, and jazz dance at the age of 5. A few years later, she was introduced to Irish music and dance, a close relative to the music and dance of her own French Canadian roots. Danielle was taken in by the local Irish musicians and dancers and quickly became immersed in the local scene. She grew up playing at Irish sessions weekly, and dancing competitively as an Irish step dancer. While Irish dancing was her primary focus, Danielle continued to study other dance forms throughout her life, including ballet, modern dance, lindy hop, salsa, tap, contact improvisation, and hip hop. Her enduring practice of other styles of dance continues to inform her work and collaborations. ​

Having studied with dancers from many practices and paradigms, Danielle is most inflienced by her studies with a few dancers in traiditonal Irish dancing, those most notable being Peggy McTeggart in Country Cork a direct component of the nineteenth century Cork dancing masters, and sean-nós, Cormac O'Shea of Dublin and the original Riverdance, and Kieran Jordan of Boston, MA.
