Sophie or Sofia
At LDA I:
Live and breath Salsa. I love teach Salsa in all shapes and forms (Salsa linear, Salsa on2, Mambo, Cuban Salsa, Salsa Caleña, Salsa technique, Salsa shines, Salsa ladies styling, Salsa for wedding couples, Salsa choqe… the full suite). But I also enjoy teaching chacha and bachata to keep things fresh.
When not dancing I can be found:
At the Beach and having long catchups with friends over coffee.
I’m proud of:
Being the first Australian soloist to compete in the World Latin Dance Cup Amateur division in 2013 and take out the World Title (coached by Nestor Manuelian). Fast forward to now and I’d say being a worldly social dancer and coaching my students from basic steps until they grow into confident and expressive dancers.
My qualifications in a few words:
Lawyer by day; Latin Dancer by night
I’d like to learn:
Whenever I speak Spanish at the studio our latino students turn their heads and say… pero como?
