“Hard work beats talent when talent doesn’t work hard”
– Tim Notke

Dani grew up in Sweden and started dancing and training at the Ballet Academy of Stockholm at a late age before venturing out in Europe and starting his journey. He met his wife Christina while working on cruise ships and then worked in Germany, the U.K. and all over Scandinavia doing shows such as Saturday Night fever, Miami Nights and Fame: the musical.

Since moving to Canada in 2003, and in between theatre contracts, Dani has taught at the Randolph Academy and George Brown in Toronto and done dance workshops all over Ontario. He has also adjudicated dance competitions from Calgary to Cape Breton.
Beside theater, Dani found a love for the screen both as an actor and a performer (dancer, creature, model…) in several film/TV shows and commercials. There is something satisfying in sitting in a chair for hours and getting transformed into a vampire or a monster beyond recognition.

Some of his favorite screen credits include: Designated Survivor, American Gods, Nikita, the Boys, the Strain, Covert Affairs, Traitor, Mortal Instruments, Once Upon a Mattress… not to mention being the Koodo guy where he could be spotted on billboards and newspapers all over the country with his 80’s mustache.

His love for the theater and performing live still remains with credits such as: Bernardo in West side Story (productions all over Canada); Monsoon Wedding (Berkley CA); Bend it Like Beckham the musical (Toronto); Several Productions for Drayton Ent including: 9to5 the musical, Spamalot, Rocky the musical, Rock of Ages, Man of La Mancha, Pirates of Penzance…; Several seasons with the Ross Petty Panto (Toronto), Legally Blonde and Cabaret (Hamilton) and Un Ballo in Maschera (Canadian Opera).

He’s also proud to have recently choreographed for the movie The Art of Falling in Love on the Super Channel. Choreography has always been part of his creative outlet. Dani and Christina has been doing corporate events and industrials, both as performers and as Choreographers, in a variety of dance styles for the last 15 years all over Toronto.

Despite venturing into the arts at a late age, Dani is blessed to have worked all over the world, in so many theatres, with so many Choreographers, dancers, performers and in so many genres.
He believes there are no shortcuts. You have to Work for it.
