ABOUT ME

‚Äč

Legend has it, 21 years ago Danielle crawled out from the roots of a tall oak tree. Whether she originated from a tree or her mother, Danielle remains a bizarre creature. From a young age, you could find her paws deep in some dirt looking for an interesting insect to make friends with. You could find her at a borderline dangerous height deep into the bush of a tree. You could find her in a deep squat in a creek somewhere looking for the strangest rock. She has always carried some form of passionate behaviour for many different phases in her life. Going through insects, dogs, horses, dragons, dinosaurs, karate, musical theatre, etc. Nothing quite stuck until at 16 years of age, she stumbled upon contortion videos on Youtube; she was hooked. From that moment she started training, and never stopped. This obsession ran so deep that she trained all day, 7 days a week. As the obsession grew it morphed into a passion in the art of hand balancing. Not much has changed, except her mother doesn't worry about the volume of training as much anymore. At 18, Danielle moved to Montreal to pursue her dreams at the National Circus School. There she expanded her passion of hand balancing into a variety of skills that allow her to create using this and her artistic capabilities. It has been quite the journey, as she has had many opportunities to take her passion to the main stage and show the public what her life has evolved into. Not much has changed, these days you can find her in a handstand on the tree stump she crawled out of.
