Sophia MyersRehearsal Director
Originally from Cincinnati, Ohio, Sophia Myers began her training at the Cincinnati Ballet Academy where she had the opportunity to perform in numerous productions with the company. She received additional training from the School for Creative and Performing Arts in downtown Cincinnati where she graduated top of her class.
After high school Sophia joined Louisville Ballet as a trainee under artistic director Bruce Simpson, Uwe Kern, and Mikelle Bruzina. There she enjoyed teaching for the Louisville Ballet School where she taught Creative Movement through Pre-Ballet for both the school year and the summer program. Sophia then continued on as a professional dancer and teacher with Ballet Quad Cities for two seasons where she was able to expand her contemporary dance experience by working with choreographers such as Brian Enos and Dominic Walsh. After Ballet Quad Cities, Myers spent a season with Bay Pointe Ballet in the San Francisco Bay Area under the direction of Bruce Steivel while teaching for many local studios.
Following Bay Pointe Ballet, she then joined de la Dance Company under Meridith Benson and Mario de la Nuez performing in roles such as the Sylph in La Sylphide, Swanilda in Coppelia, and Giselle in Giselle. While in Cincinnati, she also received extensive training to teach the Gyrotonic Expansion System, which has been instrumental in her dancing and teaching. The past four season Sophia danced with Ballet San Antonio where she had the pleasure of dancing roles such as Cupid in Don Quixote, and Lead Harlot in Romeo and Juliet. Sophia is very excited to bring both her knowledge and talents to Mareck Dance to share with both the company and school.
