The Cousin Danny Live Experiences


1. Connect

Through storytelling and solo dance performances (by speaker), Danny is able to immediately CONNECT with and garner the students’ attention and trust. This sets the foundation for the second step of the assembly: ENGAGE.

2. Engage

Danny leads a series of dance movement and choreography (with music) to help students get out of their comfort zones and connect with their classmates. Positive energy, connection, and peak state are created and each student is able to ENGAGE and interact with the presentation.Teachers also learn the dancers and perform (voluntarily) during the presentation.

3. Educate

Messaging is carefully crafted with the types of assemblies (below) and are specialized with the meeting planners and stakeholders of each school. Danny ensures the messages hithome with the students and staff members. Each presentation assembly is designed for each school demographics and socioeconomic status. As a former school teacher, Danny excels at teaching and instilling the message where students can walk away and be inspired to ACT upon them.
