"Danelle Afflerbaugh is by far, the most outstanding coach/instructor I have had the opportunity to work with! She has extensive experience with all types of dance and was previously the Head Cheerleading Coach at the University of Redlands. Coach A. teaches the fundamentals first, and works diligently with her team and dancers to advance their skills. She demonstrates expertise and creativity in choreographing routines for any skill level, and ensures that the routines are both fun to watch and perform. Her passion and dedication to cheer and dance are evident. She is loved for her ability to motivate and encourage her team and dancers to work their hardest! Coach A is an all-around exceptional coach and individual. Any dancer’s skills and technique can benefit greatly from her knowledge." - C. Russ 


"This community will soon realize the talent and dedication of this young woman. Danelle Afflerbaugh was my daughter's High School cheer coach for three years. My daughter was a handful at that time but Danelle could bring the best out of her. Danelle's hard work and dedication at such a young age ( she was only 3 years older than my daughter) is admirable. Her keen sense for dance and technique is admirable. You will not be disappointed." - K. Smith


"Coach A has a passion for dance that is contagious. I was fortunate enough to be coached by her in college, and her dedication, choreography, and attention to helping dancers build technical skills AND character are unparalleled. She is fair, maintains high expectations for her dancers, and cares deeply about her dancers. I cannot recommend her and Duck River Dance enough!" - S. Urquidez
