We’re so excited to welcome Daniela as our newest Hip Hop Club Rockstars! As a local, Daniela has been dancing her way across the Bay Area since she was six years old. She first join the uforia community as a Concierge in Nob Hill and her passion for dance and music couldn’t keep her out of Hip Hop Club. She fell in love with group fitness as she discovered GRIT and Revolutions and immediately knew she wanted to teach! Years of Bachata dancing weave Latin influences into her signature heart-pounding Hip Hop routines. Find Daniela in Nob Hill Thursday nights and Saturday mornings!
FAVORITE NOB HILL HOT SPOTS?
I’m still pretty new to the Nob Hill area, but it will be no surprise to run into me at Trader Joes whenever I’m hungry or craving my favorite TJ Power Berries. I love thrifting so I am always looking for new finds at Out of the Closet. Also I’ve been meaning to go to the Hyde Out across the street from Trader Joes—something about it is calling my name!
What do you do in your spare time?
I love hiking and spending time in nature.. There is something about relaxing and soaking in the sun that lets me leave my worries behind. I’m a huge Bachata(a style of Latin dancing from the Dominican Republic) lover so you can find me at Space 550 almost every Friday night dancing the night away. I’m also big food lover and am constantly looking for great places to eat in the Bay Area. My guilty pleasure/happy food is ice cream and my current favorite ice cream shop is Lappert’s Ice Cream in Sausalito.
Where do you find your uforia?
I find my uforia on the dance floor and stage. My heart is filled with so much joy when I see people smiling and cheering as I dance. Now that I’m a Rockstar I find so much motivation sweating with clients as we all smile, laugh and have fun together. Dance is my passion so knowing that my art brings happiness to people makes me want to jump for joy!
What are your favorite pre/post workout snacks?
Usually pre/post workout I’m in the mood for fruit: apples, watermelon, pomegranate seeds, mango, and bananas! I drink lots of water pre workout and during, but after class I oddly always seem to crave a cold glass of lemonade. I also love Mint Chip Cliff Bars.
Favorite songs at the moment?
My favorite songs are always based on my mood. At the moment , I’m loving “Elastic Heart” by Sia. My all time favorite song is “Hero” by Enrique Iglesias. If you want to get to know the Latin side of my music life, I am obsessed with urban Bachata music and my favorite song right now is “Amarte sin Amarte” by JR.
Anything else you might want to share with our uforians?
Aside from being a uforia Rockstar, I also have my own dance project/duo with my fellow concierge and long time friend Adriana Garcia. Together we formed the hipchata (hip hop and bachata) duo known as Supernova. Dancing isn’t a hobby to me, it is my life and passion. I’m just so ecstatic to share this art with the amazing people at uforia!
