When it comes to making it in the dance world, casting directors want the total package—and that means having more than just impeccable technique. The creative team or company directors want to work with people who are professional, personable, reliable, likable and savvy. On top of all that, they’re looking for dancers with an It Factor.
Enter 10-year-old Gianna Sage, who dances at Dance Dimensions in Albany, NY. She’s not even a teenager yet, and already Gianna is working the professional dance world, modeling for various brands and companies while also maintaining a strong online presence (we love her YouTube channel, which is filled with snippets showing off her “silly side!”) and personal brand. (Of course, this is all on top of 10+ hours a week of studio training and at-home training, plus school and homework. Phew!) Follow Gianna on Instagram at @giannasage_, and read more about her here!
