Dani Apple was born and raised in Cleveland, Ohio. After getting in trouble in kindergarten for belting along to the Celine Dion CD the teacher played during nap time, Dani's parents knew they had to sign her up to audition for The Sound of Music at Cain Park. Dani was cast as Gretyl, and after the first rehearsal, the rest is history! At age five, Dani realized theatre would be the love of her life!
Dani continued performing in local community and regional theaters while studying at The Academy for the Performing Arts in Chagrin Falls, and spent her summers at Stagedoor Manor. In addition to theatre, she was a member of Radio Disney's Pop Squad, and was cast in a number of Time Warner Cable movie musicals and independent films. She was also a two-time performer on Santa's float in the Macy's Thanksgiving Day Parade.
She is a graduate of The Boston Conservatory at Berklee, having received her BFA in Musical Theatre with an emphasis in songwriting. This little Apple is now living in the Big Apple, and continues pursuing her dream of reaching people by creating and performing stories to share.
