Rising Star Areanna Lopez: “Each and everyone of us has a purpose and we should never lose faith in ourselves”

I would start a movement that’s about caring for yourself and remembering your worth! Each and everyone of us has a purpose and we should never lose faith in ourselves.

I had the pleasure to interview dancer and actress, Areanna Lopez.

Thank you so much for joining us! Can you tell us a story about what brought you to this specific career path?

I started dancing at the age of 2 years old, I became serious about dance when I was 6 years old and signed with an agency. I’ve done many commercials and print work throughout my years of working in the industry.

Can you share the most interesting story that happened to you since you started this career?

My biggest role was in the lifetime reality show “Dance Moms.”

The show was an amazing opportunity and i’m very grateful for the experience.I got to work with Abby Lee Miller and many other amazing choreographers.

Can you share a story about the funniest mistake you made when you were first starting? Can you tell us what lesson you learned from that?

At my first competition I was very nervous before I competed. During my solo I forgot the choreography however instead of running off the stage I kept going and improvised.

What are some of the most interesting or exciting projects you are working on now?

I’m currently working on my clothing line “Kouture By Ari.” I will be offering unique,edgy, and trendy styles in tween and teen sizes.

Who are some of the most interesting people you have interacted with? What was that like? Do you have any stories?

When I was on the show I became friends with the mini team. They were each amazing individuals and dancers. We were so close while on the show. It was nice to have someone throughout the process of filming.

Which tips would you recommend to your colleagues in your industry to help them to thrive and not “burn out”?

Always work hard however sometimes you need a break. Sometimes all you need is going to the movies or grabbing a bite with your friends. Just remember to take care of you too! Taking time to relax is always the best.

You are a person of great influence. If you could start a movement that would bring the most amount of good to the most amount of people, what would that be? You never know what your idea can trigger. 🙂

I would start a movement that’s about caring for yourself and remembering your worth! Each and everyone of us has a purpose and we should never lose faith in ourselves.

What are your “5 things I wish someone told me when I first started” and why. Please share a story or example for each.

  1. Head shots are one of the most crucial parts if you want to attend an audition.
  2. Be presentable when you first walk through the doors.
  3. Always be prepared for anything! Sometimes the directors will ask you to improv on the spot but you must always be prepared.
  4. Remember to take breaks and care for yourself you don’t want to get burnt out quickly.
  5. Last but definitely not least is to remember when you first start you will not be at the top but you must work your way up to reach the top!

Can you please give us your favorite “Life Lesson Quote”? Can you share how that was relevant to you in your life?

Hard work beats talent when talent doesn’t work hard! This quote taught me to work harder everyday.

None of us are able to achieve success without some help along the way. Is there a particular person who you are grateful towards who helped get you to where you are? Can you share a story about that?

Yes! My #1 supporter throughout everything has always been my Mom. She is always there for me and has helped me reach my goals and success. She is my role model and mentor.

Some of the biggest names in Business, VC funding, Sports, and Entertainment read this column. Is there a person in the world, or in the US whom you would love to have a private breakfast or lunch with, and why? He or she might see this. 🙂

Yes! J.Cole is my favorite rapper and a big inspiration to me. It would be an honor to just talk to him.
