Summer is in the rearview and homework is on the horizon, but our Shimmering Star, the multi-talented Bella Cianni, is dancing into September in full force, inspiring her fans to “Be Perfecto, Be U.”
Discovering her love of performing at 8 years old, Bella is no stranger to being in the spotlight. Her sparkling personality, fierce fashion sense, and epic dance moves shine through every performance. Whether it’s a simple practice routine, a major performance, or one of her fan-favorite cover videos of everyone from Pink to Camilla Cabello, Bella puts everything she has into her craft. With her 14th birthday just days away, she’s ready to show the world who she truly is and hopes to empower her fans to embrace what makes them special. She’s just getting started, with plenty of top-secret projects in the works that are sure to showcase her endless talents.
When she’s not performing, Bella loves riding bikes, playing guitar and piano, and spending time with her friends. In addition to spreading kindness and positivity amongst her fanbase, she also gives back to those in need. “Every Christmas, I purchase toys and arts and crafts to donate to one of my local children’s hospitals. I also help my family raise funds and create fundraisers to help children of fallen heroes such as firefighters, police officers, first responders, and the military. We also put together meals for veterans for Thanksgiving.”
