Sophia Hernandez

Apprentice I

Sophia Hernandez is sixteen years old and has loved dancing ballet since she was five. She has a great passion for performing and a love of the arts. In addition to ballet, she has experience in musical theater, performing in Broadway Showcase, Seussical Jr. and her first musical with IPBA, Matilda Jr. She also has experience in contemporary dance, competing in YAGP as part of an ensemble last season. Her classical ballet experience includes performances at Steelworkers’ Auditorium, Lewis Family Playhouse, and Fox Theater in Riverside with IPBA. In her effort to become the best dancer she can be and take her ballet training to the next level, she joined Inland Pacific Ballet Academy (IPBA) during the 2021 Summer Intensive. She is starting her third year with IPBA and since then, has performed and participated in IPBA’s Sleeping Beauty Spring Recital and Midsummer Night’s Dream Spring Recital. As part of the IPB Academy JR. Trainee 2022-2023 program, Sophia participated in IPB’s Fall Fest, The Nutcracker, LilYpada, and The Little Mermaid.  Sophia’s passion, strong work ethic, performance, and ability to learn quickly has given her many opportunities and the ability to become an IPB Academy Apprentice.  Sophia would like to thank her teachers for the investment, support, and knowledge that they have provided her and is excited for another year with IPBA!
