About Sofia


Born and raised in Philadelphia, Sofia was introduced to dance and cultural arts at a young age when she studied Apsara, a classical dance of the Royal Ballet of Cambodia. In her youth, she practiced traditional dances (robam) and social dances of Thailand, Cambodia, and Vietnam and performed at local community events, cultural exhibitions, and fashion shows.



Career


Sofia fell in love with Argentine Tango while studying at the the University of Pennsylvania and Philadelphia University where she developed an exhibition that highlighted the history of Argentine Tango. In the following years, Sofia immersed herself in Argentine Tango until her dance partner returned to his hometown (Buenos Aires, Argentina). Since then, Sofia explored other types of dances including Latin dances. Today, she shares her passion for social dancing at Danza Academy.
