Who We Are

Danielle Brennan is the owner and director of Perpetual Motion Dance Studio. In 2010 Danielle founded PMDS in the back of a local temple with only 4 students. With those 4 students, she rented many local fitness studios until we outgrew our rentals and found our home at 674 Westwood Ave, River Vale, NJ. Here, our PMDS family has grown and we are proud of all the dancers we get to meet and work with.

She graduated from Point Park University in Pittsburgh, PA with a BA in Dance. After college, she danced in many Regional Ballet companies in Pittsburgh and NYC. Some include, The Move Dance Company, MorganScott Ballet, Staten Island Ballet and Ballet Long Island. While dancing Danielle continued to teach and choreograph. In 2001, she began working for 2 of the most reputable dance conventions in the US, New York City Dance Alliance and Onstage New York. There she was a Convention Manager for many years being exposed to and working with dancers and choreographers from around the world. In 2002 she began choreographing for Northern Highlands Regional High School’s seasonal musical. Danielle has been nominated and awarded many awards from both Helen Hayes Theatre and Papermill Playhouse for her work, including “Outstanding Musical” in 2011. Danielle is also certified by Power Pilates in NYC.
