Alana graduated from the New Zealand School of Dance in 2010. In her third year of training she was offered an apprenticeship with Sydney Dance Company sponsored by Foxtel, who chronicled her experience as a dancer into a documentary. This led to a full time position in 2012. Alana performed with the company for four years working with numerous choreographers including Jacopo Godani, Andonis Foniadakis, Alexander Ekman, Emanuel Gat and Stephanie Lake. Her performances included Rafael Bonachela’s Frame of Mind, which won Best Choreography in a Dance Work and Best Dance Work at the 2015 Helpmann Awards. Alana started costume design in 2015 and her first creations featured in Sydney Dance Company’s season of New Breed. Alana joined EDC in 2016 for their China tour and since then has both danced and designed costumes for Propel and performed in Natalie Weir's Behind Closed Doors as well as Opera Australia's Aida which featured the EDC dancers. Alana was also costume stylist for EDC's 2018 photoshoots, again offering the company her expertise and understanding of the human form in movement.
