Daniel Scofield is a Spring 2021 Graduate Cum Laude of Butler University, obtaining a B.S. in Dance/Arts Administration and a Minor in Business. Graduating with High Honors from the Dance Department, Daniel has returned to his native Louisville, Kentucky to perform and train with the Louisville Ballet Studio Company. Appearing as a guest artist in Louisville’s productions of Coppélia and The Sleeping Beauty in 2016 and 2017, the 2021-2022 season will be his first as an official member of the company.
Daniel began his performing arts training at the Oldham County School’s Arts Center, taking part in numerous musical theatre productions and dance showcases. Later, intensifying his focus on ballet, Daniel expanded his training at multiple local studios and intensives such as the Louisville Ballet Summer Intensive, Pittsburgh Ballet Theatre Company Experience, and Ballet Chicago Advanced Intensive.
While at Butler, Daniel appeared in repertoire including Paul Taylor’s Piazolla Caldera and Gerald Arpino’s Light Rain, as well as the world debut of Patrick de Bana and Michael Abel’s Falling Sky. He has performed principle and soloist roles most recently in Butler’s Firebird, as well as The Nutcracker and The Sleeping Beauty, and has also choreographed for and danced in multiple student-run showcases.
Daniel greatly enjoys teaching, providing private dance lessons and working at art camps such as Kentucky Governor’s School for the Arts. He loves spending time with his dog, Scout, and cat, Sonny, as well as nerding out over video games, music, and mixology.
