Around that time she also started working as a runway and editorial model.
Aline also studied classical music and performed in operas and musicals. She first studied in various music academies in Belgium, taking classes of piano, classical guitar, church organ, cello, composition, music theory, harmony, sight-reading, ear training, and was then admitted as a music composition major at the Royal Conservatory of Mons, in the class of Claude Ledoux. There she also studied orchestration, music analysis, 16th century counterpoint, music history, electroacoustic music and improvisation. She also played piano in the Conservatory’s orchestra, and sang in their choir, which led her to study classical singing with Belgian soprano Laure Delcampe. After moving to New York, she studied classical singing with Bulgarian bass Valentin Peytchinov and started singing with New York opera companies. She sang the roles of The Queen of the Night in Mozart’s "The Magic Flute", Olympia in Offenbach's "The Tales of Hoffmann", the Dew Fairy and Sandman in "Hansel und Gretel", and others. She also sang the title role in the world premiere of the crossover musical “Grindr, the opera” and had a residency at Spectrum, a NYC venue hosting cutting-edge music perfomances, where she sang several recitals including pieces such as the Mad scene from "Lucia di Lammermoor" by Donizetti. She performed at various venues in Europe and North America, including Carnegie Hall (NYC), Symphonic Space (NYC), Opera America (NYC) and La Monnaie (Brussels).
As a solo artist, Aline released several EP's and singles, including "Superfreak", "Nothing to lose" and "Princess Boy". Grammy Awards winning producer Scott Jacoby (John Legend, Coldplay, Janelle Monae, Kelly Clarkson) said that "Aline is a fearless, real artist who has just the right amount of pop". About "Superfreak" music video, Reignland Magazine said: "The diversity in the music video is going to empower so many!". Come Here Floyd blog said: "From her mini-album ‘Nothing to Lose’, the ultra catchy synchronicity of ‘Bubble Gum Dream’ whets your appetite and then some. Her imagination for notions of the past, present and future, dilute-none, as her inflections of substance and heroic resolution, really bring out highlights for entertainment and energy."
Aline started working in Film and TV after moving to New York, in shows such as The Blacklist, Fear the walking dead, Gotham, Blue Bloods, Blindspot, The Good Fight and The Undoing. Her physical abilities and somewhat of daredevil attitude led her to work as a stunt double for actresses such as Nicole Kidman, Bridget Moynahan, Mozhan Marno, Christine Baranski, Jenna Elfman, Christine Lahti and others.
