Danielle Selby: Dancer/Choreographer
What Moves You?
“What moved me as a child was my sister. She has a physical disability and can not walk but she helped me learn to walk and we made dance show after dance show in our living room. What moved me as an adolescent was a desire to be heard despite my quiet reserved nature. As an adult what moves me now is joy and love. Joy as my daughter learns the fun of jumping and bouncing around our living room and love as I am embraced in the local dance community creating lasting friendships that go beyond the studio.”
Danielle Selby earned her BFA from the College at Brockport State University of New York. Her choreography has been performed at the National Conference for Undergraduate Research, Michigan Youth Arts Festival, RAD Fest, Built on Stilts, Detroit Dance Race, Inhale Performance series and others.
