Arielle Elonys

Dancer and Panel Expert

From dancer to singer and model to actress, Arielle’s experience in front of an audience has created the perfect mix for her success as a competition judge. On any given weekend, you’re likely to find her behind the judges’ table at a ShowStoppers® event, where she will watch and evaluate anywhere from three to six hundred individual performances by young dancers competing for top prizes. She is the essence of what they hope to achieve. 

“As a judge, I see a lot of the same costumes crop up over and over again. The top-scoring pieces in one year become the trends the following year. And a particular look will get associated with a given style of dance or a piece of music.

“That’s why I’m such a fan of the Tenth House separates collection. It provides such fluidity and promotes individuality. Dancers can create a vision that is uniquely their own. And that’s important. I want your costume to be intentional. It’s the embodiment of your idea, and it should help to carry me into your world.”
