Arielle Handler is a 17-year old actor, singer and dancer. While she has been singing and dancing since the age of 2, she first got involved in acting at the age of 7, when she was asked to be the youngest member of a local youth acting troupe. She has since trained in musical theatre, on-camera acting, voice-over and improv. She has performed with various theatre companies, including the Growing Stage-Children’s Theatre of NJ and Mayo Performing Arts Center. In addition, Arielle had the extreme pleasure of performing as “Snake” in the World Premiere of Children of Eden, Jr. for composer Stephen Schwartz. Arielle takes her training seriously and is currently enrolled in the Theatre Arts Honors Program as part of her high school experience, where she recently portrayed the role of Diana Morales in “A Chorus Line: High School Edition.” She also has studied acting technique at the Lee Strasberg Theatre and Film Institute. In addition, she has taken part in other NY-based acting programs, which included classes in Method versus Meisner and on-camera techniques. Furthermore, she studies acting and voice privately with Joy Lober Anderson. Arielle supplements her training through various master classes through The Broadway Mentors Program with esteemed members of the theatre community including Anastasia Barzee, Anthony Crivello, Andréa Burns, Donna McKechnie, Ron Bohmer, Telly Leung as well as industry professionals including Merri Sugarman, Jeffrey Lesser, Jack Batman, Joel Paley and Marvin Laird, Kevin Kuhn, and Richard Stafford. She is especially grateful to have started training with Joy Lober Anderson and the Broadway Mentors Program from the early days of the program. A typical teen, Arielle loves spending time with friends and family, traveling, and playing with her puppy. She also enjoys learning Spanish, drawing, and familiarizing herself with the modern classics of TV and film.
