Dancing with the Stars is launching its kid version of the dance competition Dancing with the Stars: Junior, on Sunday, October 7. A dozen kid celebrities are paired up with professional ballroom dancers who are, yes, kids too. One of the adorable contestants is 11-year-old Hollywood movie star Ariana Greenblatt. She is paired with professional dancer Artyon Celestine, who has been on America’s Got Talent and Little Big Shots, among others.
Ariana is known for her roles on Disney’s Stuck in the Middle (Daphne Diaz), and in the films Avengers: Infinity War (Young Gamora/Zoe Saldana — see photo below!), and A Bad Moms Christmas (Lori, Mila Kunis’ daughter), among others. Ariana will “appear” next on the big screen in the animated film The One and Only Ivan with Angelina Jolie, Helen Mirren and Bryan Cranston, among others. No wonder why she has more than 1.2 million followers on Instagram! Dancing with the Stars: Juniors airs Sundays at 8pm on ABC, right before a new season of Shark Tank.
