Ariana AriFairy is an internationally acclaimed performance artist whose unique and refined style is rooted in gymnastics, circus arts and theater. Inspired by creativity and self expression, Ariana has written and directed her own productions and created a repertoire of original stage acts to work with unique themes and spaces of any event.
Ariana was born and raised in a small town in South Dakota. Inspired by her older sister, she began gymnastics at the early age of 5. Training with Dakota Tumbling, she started competing at the age of 7 and continued throughout high school progressing to a high level of competition. Ariana's passion for circus arts was sparked soon after graduating high school as she incorporated acrobatics from her gymnastics background into hula hoop dance creating a dynamic style. Since 2010, she has cultivated a rich background in performance arts by studying stage theater, circus performance, acrobatics and dance.
In 2011, fueled by her drive for progression and professionalism, Ariana moved to Kansas City, MO to begin her aerial training specializing in static trapeze and lyra at Quixotic Fusion School of Performing Arts. Since then she has captivated audiences in places such as South America, Central America, and Southeast Asia. Her performances have been enriched by each stop around the globe, providing new inspiration and creative progression to her diverse range of acts.
In addition to performance, Ariana also offers a wealth of experience in teaching technical and performance classes, from private instruction to group workshops. Based in Boulder, Colorado Ariana is available for performances, entertainment and instruction both locally and internationally.
