Dani as a Performer
I started studying Musical Theater when I was 14 years old, back then I was already a huge fan of many Broadway Musicals like Cats, The Phantom of the Opera, Rent and West Side Story. Everything started when people started telling me that I had talent for singing, something I didn't realized on my own and I was very shy about.
I grew up in a family that exposed me to all kinds of different music genres and styles; we are 5 siblings all with very unique styles. In my house you could always listen to artists like The Beatles, Bob Marley, Shakira and Argentinean Tango as well. I think all those artists and styles plus my excitement about singing contributed to my first steps in Musical Theater. When I realized that I could combine the joy that music gives me with performing and dancing, I wanted to learn everything about it and fell in love instantly.
Musical Theater is a way of losing yourself in a story that makes you connect with all kinds of feelings through the music. It makes my ordinary world thoughts stop for a second and it gives place to an extraordinary beautiful world.
I recently was part of a small production of Sweeney Todd. Not long ago I was in the professional production of Smokey Joe's Café Argentina. I have been the vocal coach for an original Parody show about Big Brother. And now I am super excited with my new project ¨Dani Flombaum & The West¨ a music band that plays for shows and events, where I can sing all my favorite songs and I can be myself 100%.
- To always go forward if you are passionate about it.
- Always keep yourself busy with classes or shows.
- Be strong and be prepared for a couple disappointments.
- Never stop learning
Yes!! Every week I take singing, performing and dancing classes to keep myself in action. I try to take really good care of myself, you won't ever hear me yelling or straining my voice. Also since I started performing at TIGROU, seeing how fit and healthy the acrobats are inspired me to be more conscious of my body and health. I train twice a week with one of my circus partners and I also swim a couple times a week plus dance and yoga classes. My last big healthy choice was becoming a vegetarian.
Different people, their culture, their story and personalities. Also, a good movie, a nice painting, a great book.
1. Be a nice person. Be kind to the people you work with, and do not cause drama.
2. Be responsible. If you assume a compromise, do it all the way not half way.
3. Your work has to always be rewarded in some way.
Give yourself some time and know that everything will pass. Ups and downs are very normal in this profession, the same way bad things come, they also go. It is important to be surrounded by people who love you and care about you.
Rent and Cats.
