Professional Company / Faculty
Sofia has been expressing herself through movement since she was five years old, beginning with the study of Ballet and Jazz in her hometown of Monterrey, Mexico. She moved to Austin, Texas at the age of 10, and her involvement in dance was replaced by other responsibilities. It was not until she was working as a 4th-grade teacher that she turned back to dance as a pastime. That is when she discovered aerials and contortion. After several years of practicing, she decided to leave teaching and become a professional performer.
She has been teaching aerial for the past 4 years to various skill levels and ages while training for performances. She has appeared in many competitions and shows, including the Aire Festival in Mexico, a rendition of Shakespeare’s The Tempest, and numerous private events. Currently, she works at Frequent Flyers, Gravity, and ACOD and is very excited to continue her aerial journey surrounded by passionate artists.
