DANIELLE ALBERTINA: A DANCER SURVIVING (QUITE NICELY) IN NYC
 

Meet A4D member Danielle Albertina. Like many dancers, she began training at age three, and along the way, decided dance would one day become her career. It’s a long journey from St. Louis, Missouri to New York City, but Danielle was determined to get there… and she did.

What she didn’t expect when she arrived five years ago was the conflict between finding a way meet her living expenses and being able to carve out time for her dance career. The energy she used bartending and working in the service industry gave her little time to train and audition. Eventually, she made the choice to work exclusively in dance-related endeavors… She started teaching and judging for various competition companies. Keeping her efforts in the dance and entertainment world allowed her to stay involved in her passion.

Danielle is now a true freelance artist. Her Answers4dancers membership provided her with the types of jobs that suit her schedule and also gives her time to train. No two weeks look the same in Danielle’s life and she loves that.

We asked Danielle how she keeps track of everything? She shared, ‘The gigs I’m currently juggling are directing/choreographing for the youth elite program at Sol Dance Center conveniently located in my Queens neighborhood, traveling with Universal Dance Association, StarQuest and the Dance Worlds as an adjudicator, performing with Athena Entertainment, and performing with the immersive show Menagerie D’Arte produced by Dalia Carella and Debbie Cartsos.’

Never one to take the easy path, Danielle had a double major at Southeast Missouri State University and earned a Bachelor of Arts in Dance and a Bachelor of Science in Family Studies before pursuing her dreams.

Danielle’s networking skills have led to many of her current projects including being an ambassador for D. Webb Designs… a company that creates clothing for dancers, by a dancer. This has given Danielle the opportunity to even model for the company website. Recently, NYGal.com ran a profile on Danielle as a New York Influencer. They found her through her social media platforms. Another smart way to connect with the NYC dance scene.

What’s Danielle’s best advice for other dancers? ‘Follow your heart while trusting your voice and vision no matter what. Remember, you get what you give. Be nice. Stay focused. Keep good company. Listen to good music. Don’t let anyone dim your light!’
