Amelia Hironaka
Dancer
“Like Ingram, Hironaka had to step up to the plate in her performance as Linda, which is normally played by Michelle Nash. Hironaka’s performance was reminiscent of the comedic genius of Cheri Oteri. While her acting was fantastic, her gorgeous vocals were equally impressive.”
– Jim Ryan (theartsstl)

Amelia Hironaka, originally from Calgary, AB is a dedicated triple threat performer. She is a proud graduate of the Randolph Academy. Her strong work ethic and passion is brought in every project she takes on, and her grounded energy helps to channel love throughout.

Amelia has had the privilege of working professionally both nationally and internationally. Most recently finishing a 6 month tour of North America with We Will Rock You. She’s also toured Evil Dead: The Musical and Disenchanted.

Performing isn’t her only love, she has been choreographing and teaching for various theatre companies and studios for several years. Being able to imagine something up and see it through to fruition is an amazing feeling. Her teaching has also taken her around the world, having taught in Amman, Jordan. This is an experience she still carries with her as it taught her just how powerful performance and theatre can be, breaking cultural and language barriers alike through the power of movement and expression.

Some of her favourite credits include: Dot in Blue Champagne, Soupy Sue in Urinetown, Apache Dancer in Joseph and The Amazing Technicolor Dreamcoat, Christmas Eve in Avenue Q.
She is thrilled to be embarking on the next chapter of her career with the DaCosta team. She cannot wait to see what opportunities lie ahead!
