Follow Friday: Danielle Polanco a.k.a. Danielle Ninja

Ladies and gents, I give you Follow Friday. Based loosely on the idea started by Twitter, each Friday I will introduce you to people in various industries whom I think will enhance your life. We start with Danielle Polanco. Unarguably most recognized for staring opposite Omarion in his 2006 hit music video "Touch", and for her supporting role in Step Up 2 the Streets, Danielle is one of the dance industry's elite dancers who, by the ripe age of 23, has built an extensive and impressive resume. Her unusual combination of hip-hop, popping, and voguing has gained her much attention in the music industry. A few of her video appearances include Beyonce's "Check On It" (2005), Janet Jackson's "So Excited" (2006), Beyonce's "Get Me Bodied" (and damn near every other video off B'day)(2007), Usher "Love In This Club" (2008), Chris Brown's "Forever" (2008), and Ne-Yo's "Miss Independent" (2008).
