Sophie DeBruin My love for dance started when I was just 3 years old.
Throughout my childhood I studied Tap, Jazz, Ballet, and Hip Hop at two well
known dance studios in the Fox Cities area. I then decided to branch out
from studio dancing and I became of member the award winning Little Chute
High School Dance Team for 4 years. I am currently attend Madison Area
Technical College obtaining a degree in Veterinary Technology and I am
thrilled to continue my passion for dance at Madison Dance Academy. I love
teaching all types of dance but I have a strong focus on Hip Hop, Jazz, Pom
and Dance, and Tap.
