DANIELLA BROWN, ARTIST/PERFORMER
Two of the things the Caribbean is best known for globally are prolific scholars, historians and activists; and creative and talented artists/performers. Daniella Brown’s interests blends together her passion for both the performing arts as well as empirically-based academics into a perfect potpourri of the best the Caribbean has to offer.
Born to Jamaican 🇯🇲parents, and a student of dance from the age of four, Daniella’s book Mini Movers combines her tertiary-level knowledge with her passion for the artform, and is an introduction to movement diversity through the integration of children’s picture books and dance. This gifted Temple University alumnus has studied various genres of dance, ranging from ballet to hip-hop, has travelled the globe as a result of her passion, and is a Dance/Movement Therapist with experience working with intellectually and developmentally disabled adults, youth in treatment foster care and those with autism spectrum disorder.
Daniella is one of the facilitators of the interactive portion of the Brooklyn Caribbean Literary Festival children’s program and is a wonderful example of Caribbean excellence in the diaspora.
