Sofia is a Washington state native, but was fortunate to stumble upon classes at the FCBD® studio in 2008. She received her General Skills and Teacher Training certification in 2015 and is honored to be a member of the FatChanceBellyDance®.
Before beginning her ATS® education, Sofia studied and performed Egyptian cabaret under the direction of the esteemed Nanna Candelaria. As a cabaret student, she was terrified of dancing solo—you can imagine Sofia’s delight when she discovered an entire dance form committed to group improvisation! Once she caught the ATS® bug, she never looked back.
Sofia was immediately enraptured with the ATS® aesthetic and appreciated how the rules impose order on chaos to create limitless possibilities. She is committed to continually improving and refining her skills and performing classic ATS® at its finest with FCBD®. Sofia also enjoys exploring the freedom within these boundaries as a founding member of Tessera Tribal®.
When she’s not dancing, Sofia is an attorney, cat wrangler, avid maker and eater of pies, fan of RuPaul’s Drag Race, karaoke enthusiast, and a novice tropical fishkeeper.
