In addition to dance, Sophia also has a strong passion for horses. Her family and all of us at PBR are incredibly proud of her accomplishments, as she has overcome so many challenges and obstacles with grace and poise. Along the way, she has learned how to adapt and deal with adversity. She has come such a long way and has grown in so many ways over the years. We wish her the best on her future endeavors!

Sidnie has been dancing since the age of 3, with Miss Pauline since the age of 5, and competing for 10 seasons now. She performs and competes in all styles, and enjoys all of the new experiences and challenges that various styles and choreographers offer. Sidnie was proud to be named Captain of the AAHS Lioneers Dance Team this season, and was honored to have placed both with the group, and individually, at a national competition in March. She was honored to perform as young Clara and as Trepak in PBR’s holiday shows over the years. Most important to Sidnie are all of the incredible people she has had the opportunity to dance with, and for, over the years. One of her favorite experiences is when Miss P joins them on stage. Sidnie also loves working with young dancers, encouraging them, and helping them reach their potential. She is also active in Broadcasting and MLTV at Altoona High, and was a 4 year member of the very successful AAHS Gymnastics Team, where she specialized on floor.
