Ariellys is a New Yorker who's bold, fierce, and has hair with a mind of its own. A childhood cultivated in the Bronx Ariellys found her passion for musical theatre in the middle of 5th grade. Her love for performing started out when she began salsa dancing and immersed herself in her hispanic heritage and hopes to continue exploring that in the future. Her favorite part of performing is bringing people together and creating within a community. The past four years Ari (as most know her) has had the pleasure of being apart of multiple productions at Shenandoah, as in Siohbah (CURIOUS INCIDENT OF THE DOG IN THE NIGHT-TIME), Dionne (HAIR), Mother U/S (TUCK EVERLASTING) directed by Micheal Park and choreographed by Shannon Lewis. When Ari isn't performing you'll find her hanging with friends, cooking, weightlifting at the gym, and enjoying some good old Buffalo Bills football. Ariellys is so excited to pursue her dream and see where life takes her and her fellow peers!
