First and foremost, Ari is a martial artist and musician (Bass player in "Signs Of May"), that is obviously the reason why he was asked to join Pinta... as a dancer. Obviously. Aside from music and kickboxing, Ari has also ventured into acting, and that makes him a very polyvalent artist. Ari is charismatic and hard-working while performing on stage, it is very difficult to realize that he is not a trained dancer. Ari has been in several of Pinta's production since the beginning of the company.
Ari is a professional sports massage therapist, as well as professional in traditional mobilizing treatment and an energy healer. Ari's history as a dancer helps him to understand physical performers' bodies as a massage therapist.
