Ballet, Jazz, Hip Hop, Pre-ballet, Toddler, Mommy & Daddy & Me, Administrative Assistant
Sophie joined American Dance Institute in 2018. She taches primarily at our new Shoreline School. In addition to teaching Ballet, Jazz, Hip Hop, Pre-ballet, Toddler, Mommy & Daddy & Me classes, she is also an administrative assistant in our Shoreline office.
Sophia Stanley grew up studying ballet, tap, jazz, lyrical, and contemporary in Tulsa, Oklahoma and was part of her high school dance team for two years. She graduated from Oklahoma Baptist University with a bachelors in News and Information. During her sophomore year of college, she founded the OBU Pom Squad and acted as coach and captain until graduating.
Ballet, jazz, and contemporary are Sophie's favorite and she loves focusing on technique and conditioning, no matter the style. She has been teaching dance for six years and loves working with students of all ages and levels. She loves creating choreography that makes dancers feel challenged, confident, and creative.
Sophie moved to Seattle from Oklahoma in June 2017, so when she isn't in the dance studio, she is probably exploring the city, walking at the beach (it doesn't matter what the weather's like), or doing yoga.
