Sofia has been dancing with Legacy Ballet Academy since its opening in 2008 (under Arizona Dance Artistry and Phoenix Youth Ballet Theatre), when she was 3 years old.
She will dance the roles of Gumdrop Fairy and Angel Fairy in this year's The Nutcracker Suite. She performed the role of Clara in the 2018 production of The Nutcracker Suite. In other years she's performed the roles of Snow Queen, Lead Marzipan, Soldier Doll, among many others.
Sofia also starred as Plumette in Beauty and the Beast, and a Willi in Giselle. She has competed in numerous ballet competitions, performing Silver Fairy, Flames of Paris, and will compete Les Corsaires this year.
She loves ballet because she loves seeing improvements in her technique when she works hard and practices. She loves being on stage and expressing the music through dance.
A ninth grader at Cactus Shadows High School, Sofia enjoys civics and social studies. When she's not at school or the dance studio, she spends her time hanging out with family and friends, swimming, going to the movies, and playing with her dog.
