Danielle Lima was born in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil. She started dancing at the age of 7 at the Dance School Centro de Rio de Janeiro, Brazil. There she studied ballet, jazz, tap, modern, national and international folkloric dance. Ms. Lima also performed for several years with G.R.E.S. Beija-flor, the largest samba school of Rio. Ms. Lima appeared in numerous television shows in Brazil, such as Xuxa and Domingao do Faustao. In 1998, she performed contemporary pieces in the Opera O Guarani with The Rio Dance Company. Committed to maintaining her cultural roots, Ms. Lima continued to perform traditional folkloric dance as lead dancer with Rodry Baiano Dance Group. In 2000, Ms. Lima joined the Ringling Bros and Barnum & Bailey Circus, where she worked
with Choreographer Tony Stevens for over 3 years. Later, Ms. Lima relocated in New York City where she taught modern and ethnic dance workshops at the Harlem YMCA. Ms. Lima joined Djoniba Dance & Drum Center as a teacher of Brazilian Samba in early 2004. In 2005, she founded the Brasileirando Dance Group, a company that aspires to disseminate Brazilian folkloric and contemporary dances. Brasileirando has performed at the Lincoln Center, Socrates Park 20th Anniversary, The Soho's Art Parade in New York City and at the Dance Conference in Saint Louis. Currently, Ms. Lima is a Teaching Artist in the Dancing Classrooms Program at the American Ballroom Theater and teaches in the Arte Capoeira Center.
