Kiana "Kiki"

Motivate. Elevate. Captivate. Illuminate: four pillars of inspiration that Kiana strives to achieve and share on a daily basis. In the languages of her many different art forms, and through teaching, coaching, and performing, Kiana aims to inspire others to illuminate at their highest frequency and accomplish more than they dream of. 

Originally from Nanaimo, British Columbia, Kiana has been dancing since the age of 3, having trained in Ballet, Tap, Hip Hop, Musical Theatre, Jazz, Acro, and Burlesque. Kiana was also a competitive gymnast, and a classically trained singer for 7 years. When she moved across the country to Toronto, Kiana attended a 3-year Bachelor program studying Musical Theatre at Randolph Academy. Also known by the name “Kiki”, Kiana represents two Hip Hop crews: ‘Footnotes Elite’, and her all-female crew, ‘House of Hunniez’.

Born a performer, Kiana has always been drawn to the stage and is grateful to have found herself on many stages across the world. Some of Kiki’s performance highlights include: “A Trip To Unicorn Island” World Tour with YouTube sensation Lilly Singh; a Quebec tour performing in Just For Laughs' ‘Footloose’ the Musical; dancing with Rihanna, Drake, Machel Montano and more; and was a selected Monsters 2019 cast member! 

In addition to stage performances, she has also been on numerous TV show and movie sets with Nickelodeon, Disney, CBC and Netflix. Some shows include “Zapped”, “Jinxed”, “Grand Army”, ”Tall Boyz”, “Work It”, “Spin”, “Sneakerella” and “Zombies 3”. 

When she’s off stage, Kiana is also a seasoned and passionate teacher. She has a huge passion for sharing knowledge to motivate and inspire others, especially through art and movement. Whether at an elementary school, or in a competitive dance studio, she has taught and choreographed in many cities coast-to-coast across Canada, and judged many competitions. 
Kiana is an entrepreneur at heart, and is the owner of three companies: Dance At Home, an online dance class platform for kids, aiming to educate youth on dance knowledge and culture through classes and fun shows; Save The First Dance, a Wedding Choreography and Entertainment Company; and KS Creative, an event production company.
