Biography

Ariyanna began dancing in her early teens. In her grade eleven year, Norman Leggett cast her in her first Musical Theatre production, \”Alice in Wonderland\”.
She has remained steadfast to her passion for singing and dancing since then.  Her resume includes: choreographing numerous Elementary/Secondary school musicals, establishing, \”The Movement Connection\”,  chairing the entertainment for the Opening and Closing ceremonies at the recent BC 55 plus games, in addition to teaching her regular classes of Dance, Pilates and  Sports Conditioning. When she isn\’t teaching, she still loves to perform.
Ariyanna would like to thank her family for all of their support over the past many years. \”My wonderful family has graciously come to the realization that while they may be able to get me out of the Theatre…….there is little chance that they can get the theatre out of me……..love you all\”.
