Carrie Ann Inaba Wiki Biography

Carrie Ann Inaba was born on 5 January 1968, in Honolulu, Hawaii USA, of mixed Puerto Rican, Irish, Chinese, Filipino and Japanese descent. Carrie is a dancer, actress, singer, choreographer and host, probably best known to be part of the television show “Dancing With the Stars”. She was also one of the original Fly Girls in the series “In Living Color”, and all of her efforts have helped put her net worth to where it is today.

How rich is Carrie Ann Inaba? As of mid-2016, sources inform us of a net worth that is at $8 million, mostly earned through a successful television career. She’s also been involved in numerous endeavors, including acting in various films and television shows. She’s also tried her hand at producing, and as she continues her career, it is likely that her wealth will also increase.

Inaba attended Punahou School, matriculating in 1986 before going to Sophia University. She then attended the University of California, Irvine and then moved to the University of California, Los Angeles, graduating with a degree in world arts and cultures.

In 1986, Carrie moved to Tokyo and started a singing career which lasted for a few years. During this period she released three singles entitled “Yume no Senaka”, “Be Your Girl”, and “Party Girl”, and along with these, she also hosted television and radio series’. After 1988, she moved back to America and became part of the Fly Girls for the show “In Living Color”. They were a group of backup dancers who performed with popular singers, and Carrie was part of the show until 1992, and then became a dancer for Madonna’s “Girlie Show World Tour” in 1993.

Carrie made a brief appearance in the Mike Myers film “Austin Powers: The Spy Who Shagged Me”. She would then appear in “Austin Powers in Goldmember” as Fook Yu, along with Diane Mizota playing Fook Mi – they later reprised their roles for a Motorola commercial. Aside from these, Inaba is seen as a dancer or in minor roles in films such as “Showgirls, and “Monster Mash: The Movie”. She was also part of the television series “Jack & Jill”, “The View”, and “Dance War: Bruno vs. Carrie Ann”. She made a guest appearance in “Hannah Montana”, and was also an anchor for the TV Guide Network during the “2009 Primetime Emmy Awards”.

From behind the scenes, Carrie has also worked as a choreographer for various shows such as “American Juniors”, “American Idol”, and “Married by America”. The “Miss America” pageant was choreographed by Carrie for five years, and she also made an appearance as a choreographer for “So You Think You Can Dance”. Her net worth benefited accordingly.

Carrie has also started her own video production company entitled EnterMediArts, Inc. She has worked on films including “7th Festival of the Pacific Arts”, “Black Water” and “E! Behind The Scenes Miss America Special”.

For her personal life, it is known that Inaba dated Artem Chigvinstev, who was a contestant from “So You Think You Can Dance”.
