Kalani was enrolled into dance classes by her mother because it was fun and cute to dress her up. Kalani's favorite style of dance to watch is Contemporary and her favorite style of dance to perform is Lyrical. If Kalani doesn't become a professional dancer, she will become a dance teacher, choreographer, and go to college. Kalani's specialties are Ballet and Lyrical and she has been dancing for 10 years.
On Abby's Ultimate Dance Competition
Throughout the competition Kalani was shown to be Abby's favorite due to her flexibility, technique and her natural look of a dancer.
In Vegas Show Stoppers, Kalani performed a hip hop trio with Tyler and Travis but due to the style being her weak point, she ended up in the bottom two alongside Ally. Despite Abby disagreeing with Rachelle and Richy's decision, Kalani was sent home.
However in Anything Can Happen, Abby revealed during the group challenge that she was going to use her call back card, despite being against the idea of it the previous week and thus gave the card to Kalani, putting her back in the running for the prize.
Kalani advanced all the way to the final but was eventually eliminated a second time during the final group challenge as she gave the weakest performance out of the final four.
A year after AUDC, Kalani and her mother joined the Dance Moms cast. In the same year, Kalani also auditioned for America's Got Talent alongside fellow studio members as a contortionist group named "Complexity".
On Make Your Mark: Ultimate Dance Off
In 2011, Kalani participated in Disney Channel's Make Your Mark: Ultimate Dance Off competition. The Grand Prize was a chance to perform on the Disney Channel series "Shake It Up". Kalani (10 at the time), competed with Arielle, Alyssa and Kailey in a group called AKsquared. The group were crowned the winners and performed in the episode "Camp It Up".
