About Sofia

I thank my family for teaching me to be passionate about life, helping others, learning and teaching, but most of all a passion for art. Through them I learned to be sweet, empathic and forgiving. On account of these qualities, it's easy for me to enter into people's lives, and help them overcome their problems and struggles.
Because of being a dancer, I am able to establish better relationships with other human beings, and to have a better understanding of human nature.
I love teaching and transmitting my knowledge to other people.

Spanish is my first language and I'm very good at teaching it. I've been tutoring for over a year now.
I'm a very organized, responsible, sweet and patient person, and I like to teach my students in a dynamic and agreeable way.

I come from Cali, Colombia, which is one also known as the "Salsa's Capital". It's a city where Salsa vibrates in every corner, penetrating and amusing its citizens. Salsa dance is in my blood, is part of who I am. I love dancing and teaching it. Back in Colombia I was a teacher at a Ballet School and at Institution. I taught Ballet, Salsa and various Carribean rhythms.

I have been dancing ballet for over 10 years, and I've been teaching it for the last two years to young children. Currently, I am a trainee at the Joffrey Ballet School.

Dance is my passion. It connects me with my true self, raising me to a state of absolute peace. That passion, joy and sense of harmony is what I try to transmit to my students.

I believe that I have the gift of teaching, listening and helping. I encourage students not compare themselves with others, but with themselves, as well as to overcome their mental blocks and limitations.
