Say hello to...

Danielle Campbell



Danielle is excited to bring Razzamataz to her hometown Wolverhampton, where she grew up and found her love and passion for the arts. She began her journey in the arts when she started secondary school at Coppice Performing Arts and then she successfully auditioned for a youth dance company housed by Flexus Dance Collective. Here she trained intensively and progressed through the collective where she became a lead dancer and rehearsal director for the Touring company; and she would go on to work for the organisation as a choreographer and administrator. During her dance training she gained experience in a number of dance genres ranging from Salsa to Capoeira and Ballet to the Graham technique, with an emphasis on contemporary and physical theatre.

Dance was her main passion but that didn’t stop her from going to Barcelona with the school’s vocal group, performing in every school musical, joining the drama club and a peer-led glee club. She also showed a great interest in art, English and photography. Danielle achieved distinction in GCSE and A Level Dance and Performing Arts and also got her Gold Arts Award. In 2013 she was selected as a Young Creative by U:Dance where she choreographed a 7 minute contemporary work titled ‘TRANS’ which was showcased at the Linbury Studio Theatre, Royal Opera House in London. Danielle was selected to open the night with Wayne McGregor and she was later contacted by famous choreographer Richard Alston who praised the work and invited her to share the duet again in London later that year.  ‘TRANS’ was also performed at the Riley Theatre, NSCD in Leeds and at the Arena Theatre, Wolverhampton. Danielle has also worked with Birmingham Dance Network following an exciting internship whilst at university. Here she networked with professional artists from a range of disciplines, worked in partnership with DanceXchange to co-ordinate weekly classes led by established artists, managed their social platforms, assisted productions at venues such as The Mac Birmingham and more.

After completing her second year at university Danielle decided to take some time out to find herself as a person and an artist; this led her to look back at her career and education to date. It reminded her of how inclusive the arts are, particularly dance, drama and singing, and of the confidence, skills, friends, memories and experiences she had gained along the way and that she too wanted to provide young people with the same amazing opportunities that she had. And what better way than the Razzamataz way!
