Ali Hand
Actor, Singer, Dancer
“There is no secret ingredient. It’s just you”
– Jack Black

Ali Hand is a hardworking, energetic, passionate and spirited performer. Her work ethic, drive and dedication to her craft, combined with her unforgettable quirk and bubbly spirit truly set her apart. Hailing from Niagara, Ali’s dad brought her to her first open call at the age of three. She didn’t book it. He did. That lit a fire inside of her that has been burning brightly ever since. Bringing things full circle, she performed in her final home town musical alongside her dad before moving away to attend Randolph Academy, making Toronto her new home.

Since graduating Ali has been training and performing as much as humanly possible. She has taken on some of her dream roles including Anne in Anne of Green Gables and Little Sally in Urinetown. A powerhouse vocalist, Ali spent her winter swinging in an intricate jazz trio at Canada’s Wonderland and performed as a lead vocalist at the Air Canada Centre for the Rotary International convention, singing to thousands. Ali also discovered her love and passion for writing and storytelling in her debut one woman show The Callback Cabaret. Described as heartfelt and hilarious, as well as “the cabaret of the year” Ali had the absolute thrill of performing to a house that was way oversold. Sparking her passion for cabarets, Ali went on to create and produce “Cabaret for a Cause” and is currently developing some ideas for her next piece.

A true triple threat, Ali is a classically trained soprano with a strong belt and intensive acting training that brings grounded passion and authentic storytelling to her work. She has made Metro Movement her second home and spends every moment that she can in class. When Ali is not at the Barre she is most likely behind it, spending her evenings shaking cocktails and any other free time she has hiking or in the water. As a low vision, Albino actor Ali is extremely passionate about making theatre as accessible as possible and someday working with children who are deaf and/or disabled through theatre and her dedication to learning ASL. Ali’s passion and love for her career is undeniable and she is constantly pushing herself to learn and grow as a human and an artist.
