Daniel Laveille


Daniel Leveillé (Genève) took his first tap dance classes at the age of 5 and went on studying this dance discipline for 7 years with Pete Daniel. He then started taking classes with Fabrice Martin, in Lausanne (Switzerland). At 10 years old, Daniel started taking jazz and ballet classes. For 10 years straight, he trained in ballet, jazz, contemporary and modern jazz and studied hip-hop, latin dance, Irish, lindy hop, salsa, piano, juggling and judo.

Daniel won the IDO Tap Dance World Championships in the children category at age 8, and went on to win six more gold medals in the junior and adult solo categories between 2006 and 2013. Over 10 years of participation at the World Championships, he won 16 world champion titles.

Since 2010, Daniel is a part of the Martin's Tap Dance Company, based in Lausanne, and performs in various professionnal tap productions touring Europe.

At the same time, Daniel is, since 2018, the co-president of the swiss association for tap dance, Swisstap. The same year, he created his own jazz ensemble, the Daniel Leveillé Trio, with Cédric Schaerer (piano) and Pierre Balda (double bass).
