What to Expect
Lots of laughs, I liked to tell stories about how my poems came about. I talk about my struggles as an author and spoken-word artist, real-life experiences that molded me. I'm very relatable, open-minded down to earth. My audience always feels connected to me. I have been told that my story is very inspiring to people.
Dani Skye was born and raised in Saint Louis, Missouri, in University City and developed a passion for poetry at 13-years-old. While attending Benedict College, Skye became intrigued by the spoken word scene and performed with a literary group on campus, BCARTI
She has performed in Detroit, Michigan, Cleveland and Cinncinati, Ohio after graduating Benedict College in Columbia, South Carolina.
