Gianna Alava, born and raised in Queens, NY, began dancing at the age of 4 and started performing in dance competitions at the age of 8. Her current dance teacher, Anthony Borello, noticed her dedication and drive and asked her if she would like to join the competition team. So, at 8 years old, Gianna auditioned and made the team. Gianna has been dancing with Anthony Borello since she has joined the competition team and has not stopped since. Dancing with Anthony at his studio Ultimate Dance Academy has given Gianna many opportunities. Gianna currently attends LaGuardia High School of the Performing Arts, also known as “The Fame School” in NYC.
Some of Gianna’s more notable accomplishments in dance were her winning 6 titles at dance competitions, performing with MOVE(NYC) on Good Day New York, being on Awesomeness TV Youtube Series, and being awarded a scholarship with Studio School in. Los Angeles. However, her most treasured accomplishment was auditioning and being accepted for the Tremaine Performance Company. She is still currently dancing with the company today.
