DWTS pro Daniella Karagach receives her first Emmy nomination

Daniella Karagach and Iman Shumpert made headlines when they won Season 30 together. Never before had a professional NBA player made the final four, let alone went home with the Mirrorball Trophy. And a lot of that had to do with his partner and choreographer.

Daniella has only been a pro dancer with DWTS for the past two seasons. But her outstanding work is finally getting recognized this year. She’s been nominated for an Emmy under the “Outstanding Choreography For Variety Or Reality Programming” category.

The routines gaining recognition are her Halloween contemporary routine to “I Got 5 On It” inspired by Us as well as her “Dark Fantasy” piece. The Us routine earned her and Iman a perfect score and solidified their place in the competition.
