Daria is a actress/singer/dancer and NY native, with experience working in regional theatre, independent film and television productions. She is a member of SAG-AFTRA and Actors' Equity Association.
Daria recently returned to the city after performing as Cassie in A Chorus Line with Richmond Triangle Players in Richmond, Virginia. Previous to this, she performed in Meredith Wilson's Miracle on 34th Street, the musical at The Fireside Theatre in Wisconsin. Last summer, she was cast in a reading of a new TV pilot, which was performed at The Tank as part of their Pilot Program.
Born and raised on Long Island, Daria began to study dance and voice at an early age. As a child, she performed regularly on the children’s television program, “Zebby’s Zoo,” which aired on PBS stations across the country. In high school, Daria spent her summers at ACTeen (Weist-Barron Studios, NYC) taking courses in acting for theatre, film, and television and was later accepted to Yale University’s Summer Conservatory Program in Acting. She continued her training at University of Miami where she double majored in Video-Film (B.S.C) and Theater Arts (B.A). Upon graduation, she returned to New York, where she continues to live, work and train. Daria can be found taking dance classes at studios such as BDC, Steps, and Alvin Ailey; has done workshops with One-on-One NYC and The Growing Studio; and studies voice with Elena Shaddow.
When not performing, Daria teaches dance and has received special recognition for her competition choreography. She also enjoys finding new books on her Kindle, watching anything created by BBC, and working in film production.
