Ballet dancer

Arianna, 14, loves being a ballet dancer

Arianna is a sweet and friendly girl who loves to dance. She is particularly fond of ballet and participates in ballet recitals every year. She gets along very well with her peers and is able to establish and maintain healthy relationships.

An ideal family for Arianna will be able to continue the services she has in place to meet her academic and social/emotional needs. Arianna has established a supportive relationship with her maternal aunt, which a family must help maintain after placement.
