Originally from McIntyre, the family moved to Atlanta a few years back.
For her battle to win the mirror ball, Alana will be paired with professional junior dancer Tristan Ianiero and mentored by Artem Chigvintsev.
Jordan Fisher and Frankie Muniz, who were on season 25 of "Dancing with the Stars," will host the juniors version, with Olympic figure skater Adam Rippon, longtime DWTS pro and two-time mirror ball champ Val Chmerkovskiy and "La La Land" choreographer Mandy Moore as judges, People reports.
"I've never even watched the show before to be honest," Alana told People. "I wanted to do it because, when they asked me, I thought this is something that I've never done and it'd be super fun and a great experience. So I figured, let's do it!"
Among Alana's competition are Miles Brown, 13, who plays Jack on ABC's "black-ish"; Scottie Pippen's 9-year-old daughter, Sophia Pippen; Tripp Palin Johnston, 9, son of Bristol Palin; Stevie Wonder's son, Mandla Morris, 13 and 10-year-old Hudson West, who is best known for his role as Jake Spencer on "General Hospital."
