Sophia Vermaas AISTD LISTD PIA
Director and Founder of DanceTots-Boutique Dance Studio for Tiny People
“Teaching our little ones life-lessons through dance takes time, energy, patience and love.”
Dance was always part of Sophia’s life – she started at the age of 3 and hasn’t stopped! It has always been her passion.
Sophia undertook her dance training in her native South Africa gaining her Licentiate Teaching Diploma in Tap, and her Associate Teaching Diploma in Modern Theatre Dance both through the Imperial Society of Teachers of Dancing. (I.S.T.D) (London)
Sophia was fortunate enough to run her own dance school in South Africa in the 1990’s for 10 years. She taught tap, modern dance, jazz, funk and pre-school ballet – entering students in exams and eisteddfods. Since then she has travelled extensively, teaching in London (Pineapple Studios and private studios) as well as Edinburgh and now in Sydney at various private studios and schools.
Sophia has also completed her basic mat work Pilates Instructor (2004) through the Pilates Institute of Australasia (PIA) in North Sydney. She continues to attend workshops and seminars involving pre school education.
Having over 25 years experience, Sophia enjoys teaching all ages groups from toddlers to adults but her favourite are the tiny dancers who bring so much joy and willingness to learn. Sophia can’t imagine her life without dancing, her hubby and two young children, who also love to dance!
