Gianna is a sophomore at Maine West high school and is in her fifth year at Extensions where she will be a Senior Company member this year. She is looking forward to dancing with 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. Gianna has been dancing since the age of two and has never stopped. Along with her training at Extensions, she has participated in the Hubbard Street, Elements Contemporary Ballet and Tribe training programs. She was thrilled to be asked to be a Tribe Trainee and is enjoying this growth opportunity. She tries to take as many classes and intensives throughout the Chicagoland area as possible and is always seeking out new opportunities. Gianna has received numerous scholarships, regional and national awards that have contributed to her dance education. She was also a member of her dance program at school where she had the opportunity to choreograph and was 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 like to thank her family for supporting her dreams and all the rides to dance! She hopes to be driving herself very soon.
