HIStory celebrates his extraordinary talent and is a show you do not want to miss!
Born to a Gospel family, Dantanio began singing and dancing at the age of nine, developing a vocal repertoire spanning Pop, R’n’B, Swing, Jazz and Reggae. He went on to create a diverse career in the entertainment industry including theatrical work, songwriting for contemporary Pop stars and the release of two solo albums.
As a skilled impersonator specializing in Michael Jackson and Sammy Davis Jr., Dantanio has travelled the world, including London, USA, South Africa, Bahrain and Kenya, and counts Top Gear (Britain), Sun International, and Nedbank among his corporate clients.
In 2014 the coveted part of Michael Jackson opened up in one of the world’s biggest tribute shows - Showtime Management’s ‘The Michael Jackson HIStory Show’ - and Dantanio was scouted by the show’s Director to fill the challenging role. Dantanio felt an affinity with Michael Jackson at an early age and his appreciation of Jackson’s dancing evolved into obsessive practice as he taught himself to emulate every detail of the Pop star’s trademark dance style. So good was his imitation that it resulted in his ejection from an amateur dance competition at age 16 because the judges believed him to be of a professional standard.
Coming ‘full circle’ from his beginnings as an inspired young MJ fan, Dantanio looks forward to honouring his idol with his role in The Michael Jackson HIStory Show, commencing with tours of South Africa and Asia in 2015.
