Gianna Davy

A lifelong dancer and artist, Gianna has been blessed with many opportunities to witness the world from many angles. Raised in Oakland, CA, her professional career began on stage as a Bay Area ballerina where she learned that life does not have to follow a linear path, and that the simple act of playing will keep you forever connected to your most authentic and artistic self.  Her early-born passion for dance carried her through a 16-year professional career where she worked with many companies including Smuin Contemporary Ballet, Oakland Ballet, Robert Moses’ KIN, State Street Ballet, Company C Contemporary Ballet, and Upside Dance.

Teaching art, dance, and movement has also been a huge passion for Gianna, and she has had the pleasure of sharing this joy with students for almost 25 years. Gianna teaches to every age, level, and ability, and not always within the traditional limitations of studio, style, or student.
In addition to being a performer, a teacher, and student herself, Gianna is a freshly published author of a children’s book called, No One Owns the Colors, a mother of two sweet boys, a maker of nature-inspired jewelry, and a wanderer and a ponderer.

In 2009 Gianna graduated Magna cum Laude from St Mary's College with a BA in Performing Arts, and she is currently on schedule to complete her MS in Communication Sciences and Disorders from New York University in 2023.  Gianna is thrilled to launch her new career as a Speech Language Pathologist and looks forward to utilizing her diverse background to support people with complex communication needs.  Gianna lives in Northern California with her husband, her 2 sweet sons, 1 beehive, 3 cats, 6 chickens, 24 trees, and thousands of flowers.
