Ava Barabasz

Ava is a vivacious and confident eight year old actress and singer who began her journey as a toddler. She takes direction very well and has an impeccable memory as well as a knack for improvisation. Since gracing the stage at a mere three years old, she has decided that she wants a career in entertainment. If you ask her what acting means to her she will say “it is in her body and heart and she just has to do it!”

Since 2019, Ava has been working one on one with various Chicago acting coaches. She has experience being on set for print, commercial, tv/film and musical theatre. She can be seen in the upcoming short film titled, The Nickname, in which she plays a lead role. Ava also has a soft spot for musical theatre and she loves to sing. She trains weekly with Dawn Harkins from Vero Voce, to develop her vocal abilities and musical education.

Ava is also a competitive dancer and has competed at the Regional and National levels. She is the recipient of many awards for her solo and company team. Ava is no stranger to the stage and understands what it takes to capture an audience’s attention.

Ava craves learning and loves to try anything new. On days she’s not training, you can find her playing with Legos or Barbies, writing stories, playing soccer or riding her bike.

Ava looks forward to the opportunities that Gray continues to present her with!
