Kiana Mariano


Aloha, My name is Kiana Mariano and I am 13 years old.  I was born and currently live in beautiful Orange County, California.  I love to go shopping and travel.  I have been to Hawaii (at least 5 times), Bahamas, Arizona, Nevada, Tennessee, New York, Florida, and Washington State.  NYC was my favorite city to visit and because I am told I am a fashionista, it was also my favorite place to shop.

I found my LOVE and commitment to dance when I was only 2 years old.   I had been competing since I was 4 years old.  I currently attend Orange County High Shool of the Arts and I am in the Commercial Dance Conservatory.  I had to audition along with approximately 2000 other dancers hoping to get accepted into this prestigious orange county performing arts school.  I was one of only 20 kids to be accepted into the Commercial Dance conservatory.  I currently train in Ballet, Jazz, Lyrical, Hip Hop, and Tumbling and have won many National titles as a soloist.  I performed as a back up dancer with Taylor Dane in a Las Vegas show.  I recently performed a duet with my sister Melia in Couture Fashion Week in NYC.  

When I’m not dancing, you can find me riding my bike, hanging out with my friends at the beach or at the mall.  I also excel academically and I am currently on the Principals Honor roll at OCHSA (4.0 GPA).   I started singing lessons in January and hope to make it on a Broadway show in the near future.
