Danielle Russo

Brooklyn, NY 11201

Danielle Russo earned her Pilates certification with the Pilates Academy International. In addition to her formal certification, she studied with Joseph Pilates protégé Kathy Grant to supplement her dance training at New York University's Tisch School of the Arts. It is there that she received her BFA in Dance, as well as her BA in Anthropology. She furthered her studies in kinesiology and movement analysis with renowned anatomist Irene Dowd while pursuing her MFA in Dance with the Hollins University. Moreover, Pilates bridges her love for movement with her keen interest in muscular anatomy and exercise science; a middle ground between her professional dance career and her understanding of gait and postural patterns persistent in her continuing studies. Presently, Danielle has over eight years of experience training clientele in New York City. She has worked expert dancers and athletes, as well as senior citizens, pregnant women, weekend warriors and clients rehabilitating various injuries. She has been recruited to teach Pilates to professional and pre-professional/university dance programs alongside touring her choreography both stateside and abroad. A true believer in functional fitness, Danielle customizes workouts that are accommodating to her clientele's individual health needs and goals.
