Get to know Sophia
What is your favorite ballet?
My favorite ballets are Sleeping Beauty and Serenade.
What is your favorite way to spend a weekend?
When I’m not dancing for BSA, I’m either teaching for the School of BSA or exploring for new coffee shops and restaurants.
What would you do if you weren’t a dancer?
If I wasn’t a dancer I would be in grad school. I want to be a psychologist for young performing artists, and I’m slowly working through college to earn my bachelor’s degree.
