I miss my old Alvin Ailey days. These were the best years of my life. I'm actually really blessed that I was so dedicated and determined to make it no matter the circumstance. If I wasn't so focused at this age I wouldn't be where i am today. 
I grew up thinking i would be in a Modern dance company and in the technical world. The technical world wasn't so welcoming for my mouth and I, so I had to change routes. I remember going to BDC when classes were $11 (πŸ‘€Jam) to take the amazing πŸ™ŒπŸ½@rhapsodyjames class on sundays cuz I hated crowds. In those days people weren't very welcoming. To be honest, even people who i currently know and love didn't lend a helping hand. The only ones who were kind enough to talk to me were @hellojonte and @yeahimfamous. Before being a booked queen I was a cut queen. I auditioned twice for the agency I'm with now and got cut. Nothing was handed to me....I worked and worked until people couldn't deny my talent.
I know what it's like to have teachers not want the best for you. I also know what it's like to be pushed beyond your limits by teachers who care about your future. Whether I received tough love or no Love at all from teachers during my youth, I held on to those memories and I'm giving my all to share the best lessons without the discouragement. 
It doesn't matter how amazing or inexperienced you are, keep working on what you know you're capable of. I've been known for sharing my brutally honest opinion, and to the weak minded it seems like I can be discouraging. I've just been through so much in my dance career it's hard to hurt my feelings and I tend to forget not everyone has my tough skin. Trust me I'm not apologizing nor do I need to explain myself, I'm just giving some insight on why Danielle is the way she is. 
This picture brought back so many memories I had to share my feelings on it 😬

I'm abbasolutely love with the sound of  a slower Holiday so I thought I'd share 😁I posted the reg speed earlier today!! _______________________________________________________

I really want to take the time out to commend all of my fearless students that come to class from many different levels. They never know what they're walking into cuz I make it up on the spot. They don't come to class to eat the next person, they're just trying to gain vocabulary and grow at their own pace. So if you're afraid of taking my class, you must be taking class for the wrong reasons. No excuses this year people. You want to support your friends class who needs help with a line themselves? Go Ahead....HAVE FUN πŸ€‘πŸ‘€ #NoTimeForExcuses #SlowMotion #EasierForYouToStealMyShit #haha #HeelsQueen #HeelsPioneer #HeelsRoyalty #HeelsQueen #FloorQueen #Holiday #Madonna #Madge #ILoveMadge #Celebrate #DaniellePolanco #Peridance #LoveMyStudents #MyStudentsAreFearless #GrowAtYourOwnPace #NoContestOnGettingBetter #BronxGirl #SameGirl #WhereTheEliteMeet #EliteCity #OnTheSpot #LoveAChallenge #MadgeClass #dancingToMadge #QueenOfQueens #Femmology #FemmologyHeels See you this year Brasil πŸ‡§πŸ‡·β€οΈ In the meantime, Class Tonight here in NY biotches.

My first time performing with @hellojonte 2006. This performance is what inspired BeyoncΓ© for Freakum Dress and other videos for the BDay album. Also that same night, Gaga performed earlier. Basically everyone whos inspired by any of these artists need to Thank @ramonibaynes and @hellojonte for opening the doors for us to be ourselves and unapologetic about it.

I commend anyone who comes to my class. I pick the songs and make up the combos on the spot usually but lately it's been a gag. How do i gag at my own choreo? πŸ˜±πŸ˜‚
When I teach I'm thinking of what I would want to learn if I was a student. I want my students to tap in and out of different genres within a count. It's a challenge but it's so worth it in the end. ❀️ My Class

Danielle Polanco is known to be one of the most versatile performers of her time.  Born and raised in the Bronx, New York of Puerto Rican and Dominican descent, dance was an integral  part of her life.  Her development in dance began at the age of 4 and continues to this day.  While receiving the disciplined art form of Ballet, Modern and Jazz at Middle School 180 in the Bronx, Danielle acquired dance training at Kips Bay Boys & Girls Club in Salsa, Hip Hop, Jazz, Cha Cha, West African and Samba becoming an elite member of KCompany and coming to the realization the drive and passion she possessed to learn the true essence of all styles.  Yearning for more intense training to get on a more advanced level , Danielle commuted to Manhattan for two consecutive summers attending Ballet Hispanico learning dance stylings  in Ballet, Pointe,  Horton, Flamenco, and  Mexican Folk Dance.  That prepared her for high school where she trained at the prestigious and one of the most elite schools of dance, Alvin Ailey. While at Ailey from 1999-2003, Danielle received aggressive dance training in Ballet, Graham, Horton, Jazz, West African, Pointe, Limon, Dunham and in her senior year Popping.  Outside of school, Danielle took additional classes in African at Larocque Bey and Hip-Hop, Street Jazz and House at Broadway Dance Center. 

In 2003 at the age of 17, Danielle booked her first professional job with Beyonce but that wouldn’t be her last.  Danielle is best known for being the leading lady in Omarion’s video ‘Touch’ and in 2008 for portraying the role of Missy Serrano in the hit movie ‘Step Up 2 The Streets’.  Polanco has an impressive resume; she has choreographed for Beyonce, Janet Jackson, Jennifer Lopez, Usher, Chris Brown, Eve and Estelle.  She has also appeared as a dancer in over 20 music videos with top artists such as Lady Gaga, Beyonce, Janet, Usher, Jennifer  Lopez, Chris Brown, Neyo, LL Cool J, Nelly, Amerie and Kat Deluna.   Wanting a change from the music industry,  she got the opportunity from Writer/Director Arthur Laurents to perform in the smash hit revival of ‘West Side Story’ on Broadway, in which she played the role of Consuela.  Getting to sing, dance and act in one of the best musicals of all tine was definitely a highlight of her career. 

Aside from her professional  career, Danielle is known to be one of the top Underground female dancers of this era. In 2003 she was introduced to the underground Ballroom scene where she started voguing and the underground hip-hop and house scene.  Since then she’s been the top female voguer of her time inspiring a whole new generation, especially females, to move with more femininity.  She now teaches the true art of vogue and other styles all over the world. 

Danielle always knew she had a gift but if it wasn’t for family support , the brilliant guidance from her teachers in school, to her friends in the clubs, she would not have found the uncompromising secret of her talent and artistic expression.
