Stefan Daniely
Dance Dept. Head
Warner Robins, GA

Stefan joins us for his inaugural Laurel summer to lead our Dance Program. He graduated from Valdosta State University with a Dance degree and has been competitively dancing for as long as he can remember. Hip hop, jazz, tap, modern, choreography – you name it, Stefan’s done it! He currently works as a dance instructor and loves the “Ah-Ha” moments that children experience when making new dance discoveries and learning new skills. We’re absolutely jazzed to have Stefan encouraging our campers to further develop their passion for dance this summer, he’s a true winner!
