I've had a wide and broad variety of movement vocabulary. I am really blessed because I've been training since I was small in many genres so I've become versatile.

When I heard about the auditions for Black Mirror I thought this is it I am not holding back.

Danny Jones, dancer

Jones says she enjoyed every moment working with the Hollywood star Miley Cyrus and admires her professionalism on set.

When we danced with her she was completely open, she definitely made all of us feel at ease and enjoy as much as she did. We definitely had a good time.

Danny Jones, dancer

Jones is encouraging young people who want to follow in her footsteps to believe in themselves and "respond to every call that excites your spirit"
