Carlia has undertaken dancing lessons since the age of two, singing lessons since the age of eight and began acting at eleven years old.
Carlia’s love for theatre developed when she became a student at a performing arts school. Here, she had the opportunity to perform pantomimes to the general public. She was lucky enough to receive main roles in these musicals such as ‘Cinderella’ where she performed as Cinderella, ‘Beauty and the Beast’ where she performed as Beauty, and ‘Pinocchio’ where she performed as Jiminy Cricket.
During school, Carlia also joined many singing ensembles such as ‘Italcanti’ (an Italian singing ensemble) and Senior Vocal Ensemble where she would perform at fetes, schools and community events all around Adelaide.
