Sophia completed her Music Together training in 2009. She specializes in preschool dance and is certified with Dance Educators of America. Sophia is a staff member at Monmouth Montessori Academy. Sophia also loves working with the elderly and her generation classes are reflection of that love. She has a wonderful way of facilitating classes that allow parents to feel comfortable enough to be silly and have fun with their child.
