I would start a movement that’s about caring for yourself and remembering your worth! Each and everyone of us has a purpose and we should never lose faith in ourselves.

I had the pleasure to interview dancer and actress, Areanna Lopez.

I started dancing at the age of 2 years old, I became serious about dance when I was 6 years old and signed with an agency. I’ve done many commercials and print work throughout my years of working in the industry.

My biggest role was in the lifetime reality show “Dance Moms.”

The show was an amazing opportunity and i’m very grateful for the experience.I got to work with Abby Lee Miller and many other amazing choreographers.

At my first competition I was very nervous before I competed. During my solo I forgot the choreography however instead of running off the stage I kept going and improvised.

I’m currently working on my clothing line “Kouture By Ari.” I will be offering unique,edgy, and trendy styles in tween and teen sizes.

When I was on the show I became friends with the mini team. They were each amazing individuals and dancers. We were so close while on the show. It was nice to have someone throughout the process of filming.

Always work hard however sometimes you need a break. Sometimes all you need is going to the movies or grabbing a bite with your friends. Just remember to take care of you too! Taking time to relax is always the best.

  1. Head shots are one of the most crucial parts if you want to attend an audition.
  2. Be presentable when you first walk through the doors.
  3. Always be prepared for anything! Sometimes the directors will ask you to improv on the spot but you must always be prepared.
  4. Remember to take breaks and care for yourself you don’t want to get burnt out quickly.
  5. Last but definitely not least is to remember when you first start you will not be at the top but you must work your way up to reach the top!

Hard work beats talent when talent doesn’t work hard! This quote taught me to work harder everyday.

Yes! My #1 supporter throughout everything has always been my Mom. She is always there for me and has helped me reach my goals and success. She is my role model and mentor.

Yes! J.Cole is my favorite rapper and a big inspiration to me. It would be an honor to just talk to him.
