Dani 2011About our Director!

Celebration Chorus was very lucky to find Dani Avalos-Prigge in its ranks. A charter member of the chorus, Dani was not new to Sweet Adelines or to singing in general. She has been our Director since 2006 and has earned the Certified Director status by Sweet Adelines International. We are proud that under her direction we have won 3 Region 11 First Place Small Chorus awards and a Third Place Overall award!


Dani began her professional singing career at the age of 10 and sang with various groups and bands until 1979. In 1978 Dani joined Sweet Adelines and has sung with 6 different choruses* and numerous quartets**. She has appeared on the Sweet Adelines Regional stages countless times and on the International Contest stage at least 36 times! In 9 International Chorus competitions she earned 5 Top 5 International medals, and in 27 International Quartet Competitions she not only earned 7 Top 5 medals and 3 Top 10 medals but actually won the competition with her quartet, Chicago Fire when they became the 1995 International Queens of Harmony!


Today she is a much sought after coach for both choruses and quartets. Her amazing interpretation skills set her apart from others. Dani is also an accomplished costume designer and has taught many classes in several Regions on the art of Chorus Costume Design.


Dani lives in Shell Beach, CA with the ocean at her front door. She is married to Dave and has one son and two beautiful grandchildren.


Dani's philosophy: "Singing is a joy to be shared with the audience."
