At only 14 years of age, Peruvian ballet dancer Arianna Crosato is recognized as 1 of the world’s best 28 ballerinas in the Junior category.

After dancing at the recent week-long Youth American Grand Prix competition in New York, Arianna Crosato, 14 years old, was recognized among the 28 best Junior ballerinas in the world. reports that more than 1200 ballerinas from more than 35 countries took part.  She was the only ballerina from Peru at the event.

In an interview with La Republica, Arianna tells us that she began dancing at 3 years of age, helped by the fact that her mother has her own ballet school called Danzaira.  She affirms that the extremely disciplined life that being a professional ballerina requires suits her antisocial nature.

She also said that she hopes that her successes in the Youth American Grand Prix will lead her to a scholarship, potentially to study at the prestigious Juilliard School in New York.  Later on, she would like to teach ballet in her home country of Peru.

We hope to see Arianna Crosato achieve all of this and more.  We send our congratulations for her accomplishment and for representing Peru so wonderfully in the international arena.
