Daniella Brown

Daniella Brown started dancing at the age of four at Kim's Danceland in Springfield, Massachusetts. She is trained in Frank Hatchett’s 'VOP' Jazz technique along with Ballet, Tap, Modern, West-African and Hip-Hop. Her movement style reflects her Jamaican heritage, focusing on the blending of rhythm, music, movement and creative expression, and she has traveled to India and Nicaragua to study dance as a spiritual/therapeutic healing art. Daniella became Settlement Music School’s Kaleidoscope Preschool Creative Movement Instructor at the Germantown Branch in 2015, and also taught Jazz dance classes at the Camden, New Jersey branch. She is currently a Dance/Movement Therapist with experience working with adults with intellectual and developmental disabilities, youth in treatment foster care and autism spectrum disorder through Settlement Music School's Creative Arts Therapy program. Daniella also founded Uzuri Dance Company at Temple University in 2013 and continues to perform professionally throughout Pennsylvania and the tri-state area.
