Dancer, Choreographer, Instructor
Arian is a young dancer raised by parents that nurtured in him a love of dance and artistic expression. His raw talent and versatile training, combined with his natural knack for performing and choreographing, are an inspiration to his peers.
Arian’s unique style fuses hip hop with animation and expressive movements that describe the music he uses. It is his desire share his art form with other dancers, raising the bar for hip-hop performers and performances in the area.
He wishes to continue learning and growing in his art form studying the latest dance styles and techniques from some of the best teachers and performers from California to New York.
