About Dianna

Dianna is a former mechanical engineer turn professional entertainer. What started out as mimicking Michael Jackson at the age of 6 turned into a full-time passion.

Her four year old, full-time performing arts career has taken her throughout Canada performing her children’s show in the Fringe Festivals, to the Philippines teaching and performing for locals and under privileged children and to Australia performing improv with David C.
