Highlighting our CANDY BOX Dance Festival Artists in Studio Stories Podcast

Join ARENA DANCES for our weekly Studio Stories Podcast, where each week we reminisce on Twin Cities dance history with a new special guest. The next several weeks we are airing a special series, featuring artists that will premiere new work at our CANDY BOX Dance Festival July 12-16! This week we sat down with Danielle Ricci of Borealis Dance Theatre – one of the festival’s Happy Hour Artists.

Danielle Ricci is an educator, choreographer, director, and dancer. She received her BFA in Dance Performance from University of California, Irvine in 2006 under direction of Donald McKayle. In 2014 she graduated with an MA in Arts and Cultural Management from St. Mary’s University of Minnesota and earned an MFA in Choreography from Jacksonville University in 2018. Danielle is the Founding Artistic Director of Borealis Dance Theatre, a professional modern dance company based in Minneapolis. She is also the director of Dance Camera North, an annual international dance film festival. Her choreography has been recognized as “Best of the Festival” at the Frontera Fringe Festival in Austin, TX in 2010 and 2012. 

Studio Stories will air each Thursday at noon with new guests joining the host to reminisce and share their memories and history with our dance scene.
