She went on to appear in several local theater productions, as well as commercials and print campaigns, before landing the role of Roly Poly in the Broadway musical "The 101 Dalmatians," directed by Jerry Zaks ("Two and a Half Men," "Everybody Loves Raymond"), in which she spent nine months touring the country.
Disney Channel fans are also familiar with Curda for her starring role as Casey in the popular Disney.com series "Rule the Mix," as well as guest star role as Korean pop star and international teen sensation Kathy Kan on "Liv and Maddie," along with her recurring guest star role as Kennedy Van Buren on "A.N.T.

Curda competed in gymnastics until she was 11 and continues to enjoy healthy activities, such as tap dancing, yoga and boxing.

She is currently writing songs and collaborating with fellow musicians to release her first album in late 2015.
Her father currently serves in the U.S. Army Reserve, and has served in both active duty and reserve positions for more than thirty years. She and her four siblings collaborated on the EP entitled "While You Were Away…," featuring songs they wrote and recorded for their father who was deployed to Afghanistan at the time, including the most notable single, "You're My Hero," to celebrate all who serve in the military. Together they support various charitable organizations focused on serving veterans and their families.
