“Ariel is a successful and decorated 16-year-old Ballroom dancer. She has enjoyed unprecedented success in 3 different age divisions, 2 different styles, and in each of the syllabus and open levels. In the dance world she currently holds all of the major titles in her age division and she has successfully defended them numerous times. Her talent and hard work have been repeatedly validated by multiple world-class judging panels at local, national and world championship events, as well as across both the Smooth and Rhythm styles of competitive ballroom dancing. She is undeniably one of the one of the most remarkable double style pro-am competitors on the floor.
Embassy Ball Dancesport Championships are located on the west coast in Los Angeles and are the ballroom equivalent of the World Championships. Ariel won two championship titles in 2019 across two different styles, dominating her age division. This is a testament not only to Ariel’s performance talent but to her diligent dedication to conquer any goal she sets her mind to.”
