Meet Igor Faria
Hi, my name is Igor Faria, Im just a kid from Brazil with big dreams. Growing up I always dreamed to live in USA and I found dance when I was 12 years old, since then I had a really long journey to become a professional dance. I had my very first opportunity in 2010 to do my first international job in Paris/France where I realized how far I was able to go. 2 years later I got an opportunity to work for Ringling bros. and Barnum & bailey Circus and finally going to USA Where I was working for 3 years. During this time I was so focused in save money and learning how to get a visa to be able to live and work in Los Angeles. I have to say that it wasn’t easy at all but I did it. I moved to LA in 2017 like 3 years ago. Living in LA I realized how hard it is to live over there as a dancer but is definitely possible. After a year and half doing everything that I could I got my first big opportunity to dance for Ariana Grande in her music vide “No Tears Left To Cry”. After that I did world shows, billboard with her. My goal was to book a world tour with an international artist that I really love and I did. In 2019 last year we did the “Sweetener World Tour”. We did over 100 shows around the world including Coachella and LollaPalooza as a headliner. I’m very grateful and blessed. That’s all I have to say.
Wasn’t easy but could be worse to be honest. The daily fight was to survive as a dancer. In my opinion artist in general is pretty tough career until you make it but I had not that many friends but good ones that always look out for me.
I’m a professional dancer who lives in Los Angeles. I’m recognized as stage dancer and I’m really proud of myself that i did a world tour with the big artist in the world Ariana Grande. What’s make me different is my focus, hard workd, energy and the hunger that i have for reach my goals.
success for me is definitely a long journey of hard work and opportunities created by yourself. In my specific case, it was knowing that there would be people there to applaud me, people really proud of me for knowing that I had succeeded, people who really matter to me when I was at the top of my career so far.
