Sophie Wennekamp, dancer, model
About myself
Hi, my name is Sophie, I am 13 years old and I have been dancing as long as I can remember.

When I was 2 ½ years old I asked my mom to buy me ballet slippers, a leotard, and a tutu & sign me up for ballet classes. Next thing I knew I would be part of a ballet/tap combo class for three years followed by 3 years of classical ballet 2-3 times a week.

At the age of 8, I decided to expand my dance skills beyond classical ballet and started taking a variety of additional classes such as Tap, Hip-Hop, Jazz, Lyrical, Contemporary, Modern, Musical Theater, Turns & Leaps, and Acro several times a week. 

In August 2016, I started dancing competitively, performing and competing throughout the US. My first 4 years as a competitive dancer have been filled with dance performances, competitions, conventions, memorable events, arduous work and training, new friendships, joy, and of course “love for dance”.

When I am not busy dancing, I lend my voice to ABCmouse as a voice-over talent and model for a variety of events and shoots, such as Wanted Magazine, or Patrick J Design.ps://rainbowdance.com/results/2019/457
