I'm from Stockholm, Sweden. I started dancing because I was playing soccer and my dad told me that coordination training would improve my ball game, later I stuck to dance because regardless of your performance you would still receive applause.
WHO HAS BEEN THE MOST INFLUENTIAL PERSON IN YOUR CAREER?
I can't really name one specific, but I would say anyone who has given me the time and space to be myself have had a huge influence on me.
HOW DID YOU FIND YOUR WAY TO TEACHING?
When I was working with Gallim dance in New York the company members took turns in leading the warm up classes. I think it was a great way of getting to know each other and to form a cohesive movement language, from that point on I have been keen on sharing my perspective.
WHAT HAS BEEN THE MOST DIFFICULT THING ABOUT TEACHING DANCE?
To let go of your expectation on how something might translate and still be able to guide people into new experiences.
TELL ME ABOUT YOUR EXPERIENCE WORKING AT THE BRASWELL ARTS CENTER?
It has been a pleasure and a very easy experience, no hassle and open minded people I must say.
Daniel, we are super appreciative that you took the time out of your day to tell us your interesting story about your way to dance!
