If Verona native Adriana Pierce looks like a Jets girl in “West Side Story,” it’s because she’s dancing as a Jets girl in Steven Spielberg’s remake of the iconic movie.

Pierce attended Laning Avenue School and H.B. Whitehorne before studying at The American School of Ballet. She danced professionally at the New York City Ballet and Miami City Ballet, and danced in “Carousel” on Broadway in 2018.

West Side Story” opens in movie theaters on December 10. One of the best scenes to see Pierce in is the dance in the gym. The lyrics to the original Broadway show, which opened in 1957, were written by Stephen Sondheim, who passed away Friday at 91.
