Starting dance at 5 years of age she has trained in numerous styles, now focusing on Contemporary, Jazz and Urban Dance.

Despite her young age, Gianna has made a name for herself within the Australian dance community, performing and teaching for Brisbane’s leading dance companies and artists such as Mad Dance House and Raw Dance Company. Following her love for dance Gianna made the decision to go to Paris for three months in 2013, where she trained and developed her unique style and whereupon she returned in 2014 to become the first Australian to compete in the finals of world-renown street dance competition Juste Debout at Paris Stadium Bercy in the Experimental Section. Subsequently, she has continued to stay in the UK to further pursue her interests. She has been featured in all kinds of work ranging from music videos to live theatre shows performed in ten-meter tall structures at national festivals.
