Name and Position

Danielle Logue – Student Placement Event Organiser

Where do you live?

What did you do before joining Special Olympics?

Before joining Special Olympics I was an Irish Dancer. I have been dancing for 17 years and competed in many competitions across Ireland. I have won many titles that range from West Tyrone Champion to Belfast Champion. I have competed at the Ulster Championships and World Championships numerous times throughout my dancing career. 6 years ago I applied for the first ever Riverdance Summer School and got accepted. This involved staying in Dublin for 7 days and training with the professional dancers in the Riverdance troupe. At the end of this week I got to perform on stage with them to showcase a full audience including friends and family what I had gained out of this experience. This was the highlight of my dancing career! I am currently planning on achieving my Irish Dancing exams to become a teacher.

What is your perfect pizza?

Chicken and Pepperoni pizza

What did you want to be when you grew up?

Growing up I always wanted to become a professional Irish Dancer and travel around the world and perform in big stadiums with a full audience. However, throughout my experience at the Riverdance Summer School, although it was an amazing experience I also learnt I am a home bird and what some people may think is only a week it felt like a lifetime for me. This is when I knew this profession was not for me. As I was always into Sport from a young age particularly Cross Country and Track & Field running I always would have watched the Olympics and my attention quickly drew to big events and wanting to be involved in organising sporting events. Therefore, once I heard Special Olympics were offering a placement position for my course I knew this would be a great experience.
