Sophie began dancing at the age 6, studying gymnastics and modern jazz in her native France. When she was 13, She took up partner dancing with an emphasis on acrobatic swing. Early on she became familiar with the world of both teaching and performance.

Sophie eventually wanted to bring her Standard and Latin dancing to a new level. Having always been a creative and curious dancer and interested in a wide array of styles, it was natural that she wanted to broaden her horizons. Since moving to New York in 2010, she has added several styles to her repertoire such as West Coast Swing, Salsa on 2, American rhythm, and American smooth.

Certified in West Coast Swing and Bronze American Smooth, she currently teaches private lessons and group classes in Manhattan. In order to provide the best learning experience to her students, she keeps working at developing her own dancing everyday. Her drive to improve and discover more about movement is unparalleled. Even after 20 years of dancing, she remains strongly fascinated by the power of music, the dedication that partner dancing requires, and how it can open and free someone's mind (and body!). These fascinations lead her to explore yoga and Reiki Energy and to later become a certified yoga teacher with YogaWorks.

Sophie currently dances with David Outevsky in the Latin American Style professional division and she is part of the Franck Muhel Dance Ensemble. She also competes in West Coast swing.

You can find her every Wednesday at Emmanuel Pierre Antoine Dance Studios for her weekly WCS classes as well as bi-weekly socials. In the classroom she is known for combining sophistication, precision, creativity and wit!
