Zeal For Life Dance Company (ZFLDC) was born out of the passion for dance of its owner, Danielle Terrell, a native Charlottean who began taking dance lessons at the age of five. Since that first lesson, she has amassed over 29 years of experience including competitive dance at national dance competitions. Her journey also includes time spent as a dancer for the WNBA Charlotte Sting, and a member of the UNC-Chapel Hill Dance Team.  In addition to operating the dance studio, Danielle serves as the head coach for the Charlotte 49ers Gold Dusters Dance Team for over 11 years now.  Danielle's love and knowledge for dance is immense. 


Ms. Danielle and her talented staff look forward to the opportunity to teach ZFL students the beautiful art form of dance.  Instruction will include dance education and a commitment to advancing a feeling of confidence and self-worth in EACH and EVERY dancer.
