Gianna is a Junior at Maine West High School where she is an honor roll student. She is entering her sixth year at Extensions where she is a Senior Company member. She is looking forward to another year of dancing alongside this talented group of dancers and to be training under the direction and inspiration of her role model, Lizzie MacKenzie and the amazingly talented staff at Extensions.
When Gianna is not dancing, she loves spending time with her family and friends and taking SoulCycle classes. Gianna has been dancing since the age of two and has never stopped. She had the opportunity this past summer to attend the prestigious Alonzo King Summer Program. She has also participated in the Hubbard Street Summer Program, Elements Contemporary Ballet and Tribe training programs. Gianna has received numerous scholarships, regional and national awards that have contributed to her dance education. She is also a member of her dance program at school where she has the opportunity to choreograph and is recognized for her talent. Gianna is so grateful to have Lizzie and the Extensions family in her life where she is always in a positive environment and surrounded by talent, passion, encouragement and love. She would also like to thank her family for all the love and support while she follows her dreams.
