Sophia is currently in eighth grade at Holy Family Catholic Academy and is beginning her first year with Extensions. She is very excited to join the Extensions Dance Company and train with amazing teachers. Sophia is undeniably grateful to have met Lizzie and the Extensions family as they have inspired her to push herself and search for new opportunities.
Sophia took her first dance class at the age of three and has since been dancing for 10 years. She performed competitively with the Denise Sabala Dance Company prior to joining Extensions. Other than dance, Sophia loves reading, cooking, traveling, or listening to music in her spare time.
Sophia has had the privilege of attending the Ballet Matters intensive with TRIBE Dance. It was transformational for her dancing technique and was a wonderful experience. Sophia has also attended conventions with Chicago Dance Connection. These events allowed her to meet remarkable teachers and learn many lessons from their classes. Most recently, Sophia has trained in the Extensions Junior Intensive. She has genuinely enjoyed taking classes with wonderful teachers, including Laura Wade, Krista Ellensohn, Jared Baker, Harrison McEldowny, Brian Hare, Callie Croom, Joe Nicastro, as well as the faculty of Extensions. Sophia has been blown away by the recent classes and teachers she has experienced. She looks forward to her future with Extensions and cannot wait for what is to come during the year
