She has been to Hawaii (at least 5 times), Bahamas, Arizona, Nevada, Tennessee, New York, Florida, and Washington State. NYC was her favorite city to visit and because she is a fashionista, it was also her favorite place to shop.
Kiana found her LOVE and commitment to dance when she was only 2 years old. She’s been competing since she was 4 years old. Kiana currently attends Orange County High School of the Arts and in the Commercial Dance Conservatory. She had to audition along with approximately 2000 other dancers hoping to get accepted into this prestigious orange county performing arts school. She was one of only 20 kids to be accepted into the Commercial Dance conservatory.

She recently performed a duet with her sister Melia in Couture Fashion Week in NYC.
When she’s not dancing, you can find her riding her bike, hanging out with her friends at the beach or at the mall. Kiana also excels academically and is currently on the Principals Honor roll at OCHSA (4.0 GPA). Kiana started singing lessons in January and hopes to make it on a Broadway show in the near future.
