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

Dani was born in Beirut, Lebanon, and grew up in Stockholm, Sweden, and began 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 before moving to Canada.

Since moving to Canada in 2003, and in between theatre contracts, Dani found a love for the screen both as an actor, dancer and a physical performer in several film/TV shows and commercials.Some of his favourite screen credits include: What we do in the shadows, The Boys, Handmaid’s tale, Designated Survivor, American Gods, Nikita, the Strain, Covert Affairs, Traitor… not to mention being the Koodo guy where he could be spotted on billboards, commercials and newspapers all over the country with his 80’s moustache.

His love for the theatre 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 a proud dad, Choreographer and have taught dance and adjudicated all over Canada. Despite venturing into the arts at a late age, Dani feels blessed to have worked all over the world, in so many theatres/movies/tv shows, with so many artists and in so many genres.

He believes there are no shortcuts. You have to Work for it.
