The Director

Diana (pronounced Deana) Uribe has an eye for discovering talent. With a career spanning over 30 years in the industry, she has booked tens of thousands of performers and launched the careers of many actors, dancers, singers and musicians. Among Diana's casting credits is 'The Hero: Love Story of a Spy', the most expensive Bollywood movie ever made starring Priyanka Chopra.

Born in Colombia, Diana migrated to Toronto at 7 years old, not speaking a word of English. Diana lived in the projects and was unable to afford dance classes growing up. Throughout her life, Diana faced racism and bullying, but she used this to help fuel her passions and make her dreams come true. Today, Diana is a positive role model for people from all walks of life especially today's youth.

Diana dreamt of being a star herself so she started working at a talent agency at 17. She discovered that her talent was finding talent. She loved working there until it became unsafe to due to violence and abuse. At just 19 she opened her very own agency where she booked talent to work on TV shows like ‘Street Legal’ and ‘Kids in the Hall’ and on movies starring Liza Minnelli, Keanu Reeves, Michael J Fox and Ice-T, to just name a few. The rest is herstory as she is still going strong in this same very industry!

Diana is very professional and organized. She stage managed a huge concert with Destiny’s Child headlining. She booked Cristina Aguilera's DJ, DJ Joy for this same show. Diana's impeccable communication skills and industry knowledge landed her roles as a guest speaker at schools and universities. She has taught industry workshops for the NBA’s Toronto Raptors dancers, at The Learning Annex and at the On The Move conference. She was a consultant on a National Film Board dance documentary and has sat on the Board of Directors at Dance Ontario. She also adjudicates and scouts at talent competitions and hosts events that are the talk of the town.

Diana is a philanthropist who loves to give back. She earned her wings donating, volunteering and teaching English at The Angels of Medellin Foundation. You may see her all glammed up on the red carpet one day, but you will also see her changing the lives of the poor and displaced on another. She has an amazing heart and is always helping everyone in need. Many organizations and individuals have benefitted from her generosity, love, kindness and compassion.
