Danica Sedacca got her start in gymnastics at the age of two after hanging upside down on the ballet barre in her dance class and being told she should try gymnastics. Danica was signed up for gymnastics classes and took to the sport right away. By age five, Danica began competing as a level 2 with Platinum Gymnastics. Once Danica turned six she began competing level 3. At her first level 3 meet, Danica won the vault and bars titles and took second all around. Danica had a great first season of competitive gymnastics and went on to win the bars and floor titles as well as third all around at the SoCal North State Championships.

During the summer of 2018, Danica participated in TOPs Testing. From state testing, Danica made the TOPs National Diamond Team - the TOPs National Team comprised of the 50 best seven year olds who participated in TOPs Testing. During the fall of 2018, Danica competed level 4 and kicked off her season at the Out of this World Invitational where she swept all four events and the all around title. Danica went on to go undefeated in the all around as a level 4 and concluded her season at the SoCal State Championships where she brought home the bars and all around titles as well as a second place finish on vault. Three weeks after her level 4 season, Danica scored out of level 5.

During the summer of 2019, Danica participated in TOPs Testing for a second year in a row and from state testing qualified to TOPs National Testing. Prior to National Testing, Danica began training at Gymnastics Olympica. Danica finished her TOPs season as one of the top 100 eight year olds in the country.

Danica began her optional season as a level 7 in January 2020 at the L.A. Classic Invitational. Here, Danica won the bars, floor, and all around titles.

Currently, Danica trains 29 hours per week under coaches Arsen and Lara Minasyan at Gymnastics Olympica. Danica's goal for her 2020 level 7 season is to score a 38.3 in the all around and hit 4 for 4 at regionals. During the summer, Danica hopes to qualify to TOPs National Testing and make a TOPs National Team. In the future, Danica hopes to make the US National Team, represent Team USA at the 2028 Olympics, and compete for UCLA Gymnastics.
