Graciela Daniele

Graciela Daniele is an Argentine-American dancer, choreographer, and theatre director.

Daniele began her dance training at the age of seven at Teatro Colon, Argentina's equivalent of Moscow's Bolshoi Theatre. She later moved to Paris to continue her ballet studies, and while living there attended a performance of West Side Story, with Jerome Robbins's original choreography. Overwhelmed by the way dance was an integral part of the story-telling, she decided to move to New York City to study jazz and modern dance, styles she felt were best for express human emotions on stage.Rawson, Christopher. "Graciela Daniele's direction is a labor of love", Pittsburgh Post-Gazette, April 22, 2007

As a performer, Daniele made her Broadway debut in What Makes Sammy Run? in 1964. She studied with Martha Graham and Merce Cunningham while working with such luminaries as Bob Fosse, Agnes de Mille, and Michael Bennett, who hired her to assist him with Follies in 1971. Her first credit as a full-fledged choreographer was the 1979 revival of The Most Happy Fella.
