Alana began singing and dancing at an early age. As a child of divorced parents, she lived with a backdrop of jazz and classical music on weekdays, and Fleetwood Mac, Queen and Bette Midler on weekends. She won dance contests at the annual company picnics and was voted captain of the dance team in high school. In her twenties, she fronted bands in NYC and performed at venues for the ingénue modern dancer, like Judson Church, The Joyce Soho, and Wave Hill.
Alana believes in the practice of the performance of improvisation like it's a religion ~ honing the ability to navigate, shift, and improvise as we go.
