Sophia is 14 years old, and she is in 9th grade at Carmel Catholic High School. She is currently in her second year of training with Extensions Dance Company after having studied at Denise Sabala Dance Studio/Company for 9 years. She was introduced to Artistic Director, Lizzie MacKenzie, who encouraged Sophia to expand her creativity, push her limits, and break her boundaries in the realm of dance. She recently attended the 2019 Interlochen Arts Intensive and the 2019 Giordano Dance Chicago Workshop, which were two of the most wonderful experiences in her life! This year, Sophia is excited to continue experimenting with her passion alongside her Extensions family. She has never felt more loved by a group of such amazing artists than she has now. Dancing is Sophia’s way of expressing her individuality and has taught her how to live a life of freedom and curiosity. Now that she has found Extensions, she could never imagine a life without it, thanks to her phenomenal peers and teachers! However, when she is not dancing, she enjoys reading, writing, and being an avid film and music geek. She would like to thank her teachers for their efforts to help her become the artist she desires to be and her parents for their love and support.
