Arianalynn “Ari” Zari
14 years old, is a young dancer and choreographer who has accomplished so much at such an early age. Arianalynn was chosen as one of the original members of Boogiezone’s Offspring when she was only 9 years old. Even though her passion is in Hip Hop, she has also trained in other various styles of dance. She started formal dance training at the age of 4 and has been fortunate to have trained and performed with some of the best choreographers and dancers in the industry. Some of them are – Future Shock/Culture Shock Los Angeles, Dave Scott’s Ekids, Epic Props, GRV’s Gravy Babies, Poreotics’ Miniotics, and Boogiezone’s Offspring.
On the flip side of all of these accomplishments and success are the disappointments and rejection that are felt by many dancers. Arianalynn has been diagnosed with Lupus, which was very challenging – both physically and emotionally – almost forcing her to quit her passion: Dance. Yet these have become unexpected sources of blessings in disguise by helping with her creativity with dance; And now through her recent struggles, she is also growing stronger as a person. Her personal experiences brings her to dance from the heart. One thing that Arianalynn would hope to do is to inspire others – to find and do what they love, regardless of what anyone thinks or says.
