Ariana Lopez is from Mankato, Minnesota and currently attends Muhlenberg College where she is pursuing a Bachelor of Arts in Dance Science as well as a minor in Public Health. At Muhlenberg, she is an active member of the dance community as a performer in student and faculty choreographed works. Ariana was classically trained in ballet and pointe for 10 years, and has since greatly expanded her dance repertoire to include modern, jazz, and contemporary ballet. Her love of movement and desire to optimize movement for individuals has led her to pursue a career in both physical therapy and dance education. She is ecstatic to be joining the Dance/USA team as a Programs Intern for the Fall 2018 semester.
