Before Bennington, she grew up dancing pre-professionally in the Boston area as a member of Urbanity Dance Company and in the work of Jaclyn Waguespack.

In 2017 and 2018 she was a Dance-Tech Artist in Residence at Lake Studios in Berlin, Germany where she self-produced her solo project, Self-Help. She has performed her collaborative work with Colin Powers including American Parenting and Everybody Sings in Unison in Berlin and the U.S. and her most recent collaborative work with Zoe Huey, PUSH, premiered in Vermont in April of 2018. During January of 2019, Dani was hosted as an artist in residence by Elena Demyanenko. She is currently working on a collaborative dance/animation/projection work to premiere in late 2019 and is working to be further engaged in an arts practice that interrogates issues of access and community in her work in Maine with The Community Movement Workshop.
