On the DL

DANIELLE STEN-GUILLERMO

Danielle Sten-Guillermo develops inspiring contemporary compositions that are sought after by other innovators, contemporary companies and educational institutions. She strives to be an innovator of new ideas, styles and techniques – pushing the boundaries of movement and beauty – rather than a follower of the present day trends. Her work has been performed on the stage at the Joyce Theater in New York City, and in the scenes of Disney Channel movies, representing her versatility in the industry.

Danielle has been blessed to work along side 2 time Emmy-nominated choreographer, Christopher Scott in film, music and television. She was his Assistant Choreographer and Dancer in the Disney Channel Original Movie, “Teen Beach Movie” and its sequel, “Teen Beach 2”, as well as in “Lemonade Mouth”. Her television credits as Assistant Choreographer include SYTYCD Season 8 Finale Show, ABC’s “Good Morning America” and “The View”, and as a dancer for music icon, Gloria Estefan, on “The Rosie Show”, “Nuestra Navidad”, and “The View”. Danielle was also a dancer in Gloria Estefan’s “Wepa” music video. Early in her career, Danielle had the privilege of dancing for Paula Abdul.

In 2008, Danielle and her husband, Lance Guillermo, created “On the DL”. They are a fusion of unique contemporary movement with the fundamentals of hip hop technique – a duet that challenges the misconceptions of a true blend of contemporary movement with authentic hip hop dance. During the summer of 2013, Danielle and Lance wrote, directed, and choreographed an original theater-dance production entitled, “Working America”. Together they are resident faculty members for PowerPak and for the Baltimore-based workshop CRAZE: A New Dance Experience, as well as travel across the country and overseas to teach workshops and master classes, and choreograph unique compositions. Their work has been performed in shows in Los Angeles, California, Las Vegas, Nevada, New York City, Orlando, Florida and other parts of the country. Danielle is represented by Movement Talent Agency for Choreography and Education.
