A simple message just for you. 👑 Perhaps the most important thing we bring to another person is the silence in us, not the sort of silence that is filled with unspoken criticism or hard withdrawal. The sort of silence that is a place of refuge, of rest, of acceptance of someone as they are. We are all hungry for this other silence. It is hard to find. In its presence we can remember something beyond the moment, a strength on which to build a life. #thisisus #silence #thisishappening #danaygarcia #gratitude #graciasportanto #universeonmyside #unide #love #workflow #magickingdom #tvshows #ladyonthego #happiness Never forget the magic 🌻👑
At the age of 10, she started learning Ballet, Salsa, African Dance, Meringue, Belly Dancing, and Flamenco. Danay’s formal education is not known; however, she attended many acting classes and also learned more dancing techniques from Debby Allen Dance Academy. Her early pieces of training paved a path for her in Hollywood.
Born in 1984, Danay Garcia is 35 years old. She has a modest height of 5′ 7½” (1.71 m). She has a slender yet toned figure, given that she used to be a ballet dancer.
Her body measures 34-26-35 inches, and she weighs around 56 kgs with a shoe size of 10. Danay has dark brown hair complimented with equally browner eyes.
Danay’s career has been a remarkable one. She first went public at the age of 17 with Maria Antonia, directed by Eugenio Hernandez Espinosa in a Havana theatre. To become a bonafide actor, she started learning with teachers and dialect coaches to perfect her spoken English.
Besides, she as a model, booked commercials while focussing on her acting career. Finally, her first feature film came alongside Marisa Tomei in the thriller-drama Danika. From then, she moved onto guest roles in Tv. Nonetheless, she didn’t stop involving in Mexican productions like From Mexico With Love.
