Randa Barett

The true definition of natural born talent, Randa Barett began her journey at a much older age than most. It wasn’t until the age of 13 that Randa was introduced to the dance studio, and after two short years, she knew dance was going to be her life. Randa excelled in her hometown of Calgary, Alberta, entering many competitions and winning awards while performing at many events around the city. In 2008 at the age of 19 she moved to Vancouver, BC to pursue her dream.

Randa was immediately accepted into the Intensive Training Program at Harbour Dance Centre. After her year at Harbour, Randa channeled her focus into hip-hop dance. She was accepted into SOULdiers Dance Company where she spent two years expanding her knowledge of hip-hop. Over the years Randa has maintained training in all styles, knowing the importance of being well rounded in the industry. Randa had the opportunity to dance with Royal Caribbean which introduced her to the world of aerial. She found a passion for aerial hoop and it is now one of the skills she is actively working on, adding to her variety of abilities. Randa set a high goal for herself in trying to obtain her O-1 Visa to the United States, where she could continue pushing toward her goals and dreams. In 2016 she got approved and lived and worked in Los Angeles, California until 2019. She currently renewed and holds her O-1 visa until 2026.

Randa has had the privilege to work on stage and on television. Her credits include projects for Nickelodeon, Paramount+, Hallmark, CW’s Riverdale, Zoey’s Extraordinary Playlist, Step Up 4: Revolution, BMW, Royal Caribbean, and motion capture projects for video games. In the last twelve years Randa has also had many professional performing opportunities; she truly lives for live stage and screen.

Randa also has a true passion for teaching. She believes in giving back to the community and helping the younger generations pursue their dreams. She has taught regularly all over the lower mainland, including dance studios, community centers and throughout the BC School District. Randa now has her own Mentorship Program that young artists can register for to learn about the industry.
