Q. How many years have you been dancing, Sophia?:

A. I’ve been dancing for 10 years.

Q. What is your favorite part of performing?

A. I am always moving, dance lets me express myself and do what I love for people to see and enjoy.

Q. What do you feel makes you unique, as a performer?

A. Every time I am on stage I am smiling, unless my character is sad.  I always love doing what I do.  When I am on stage there is never a moment when I am not overflowing with Joy!

Q. What do you do to relax,  after a performance?

A. I would normally go to dinner with my friends or go home and get into pajamas and cook.  I really like to cook.  I want to be on the Food Network someday.

Q. How to you psyche yourself up before performing?

A. I run through my dances and focus only on myself and what I have to do and try hard not to be distracted

Q. Do you have any rituals (things you do — like a lucky charm, a special routine) prior to your performances?

A. I put on my lucky lipstick (MAC Russian red) and lucky earrings.
