Biography

Sofia is a Costa Rican circus artist with rope as her main circus discipline. Growing up, dancing was a big part of her life and at age 13 she was part of a competing dance team where she performed in jazz dance tapdancing and ballet.

As she grew older the competitive atmosphere in dance didn’t compel so she changed from dance to circus. She then moved to Rotterdam and graduated from Codarts Circus Arts and further developed her technique at London Gravity Circus Center.
