Danny Venini ’19

Class of 2019, B.F.A in Dance with a concentration in Ballet and Jazz , Dancer with SweetBird Productions and Empire Strikes Back

My time at Marymount was one of inspiration, growth, and excellence. Not only did I grow as a human, but as an artist - where I found and cultivated my identity. I was able to own my craft; where it was nurtured and encouraged by a remarkable staff. I am so grateful for the MMC Dance Department... BEST DECISION!!!


Venini grew up in the competition world, attending many completions such as Starbound, Starpower, Onstage America, Onstage New York, Beyond The Stars, Ticket To Broadway; along with attending/assisting at conventions like Artists Simply Human, Jump, The Pulse, and Groove. Additionally he trained at The Rock School for Dance Education, where he furthered his technical ballet training at the same time.

He attended Marymount Manhattan College in New York City where he attained his BFA degree in dance concentrating in Ballet and Jazz.

After graduating he went on to audition for different dance companies and broadway. Shortly after he was offered a contract with SweetBird Productions, formerly known as Bad Boys of Ballet; seen on America’s Got Talent. He traveled to Germany on his 1st contract and to France on his 2nd.
