A little bit about Daniela
Daniela grew up in the Twin Cities and began dancing with the Classical Ballet Academy of Ballet Minnesota at the age of 9 and graduating in 2004. She went on to the University of Wisconsin-Madison, where she majored in Genetics and Zoology before beginning a career full-time in dog behavior and animal welfare and adopting two pit bulls, Maxie and Dizzy. In 2014, Daniela and her fiancee moved to Cheyenne, Wyoming where she worked full-time as the Director of Operations of the Cheyenne Animal Shelter. During her time in Wyoming, Daniela returned to her ballet roots by taking adult ballet classes at a local ballet studio; soon after she began, she was asked by the studio owner to come on staff as a teacher for multiple levels of ballet for the 2016-2017 season. In 2017, Daniela returned to the Midwest, moving to Merrill, where she joined Wausau Academy of Dance and became a Board Advisor for Ballet Minnesota.
