Sonia put herself on stage and “Choreographed My Life”, accomplishing her wildest dreams by taking one step at the time, with spontaneity. She launched her first studio in Montreal’s Rosemont-La-Petite neighborhood. Later on, a partnership with Salsatheque Club changed everything. She taught there and starting running dance competitions, held massive events, and made a name for myself in the Montreal Latin dance community. She soon grew her network and reputation. She began not only teaching across all dance levels but also coaching actors, notably the late Paul Walker and Penelope Cruz for the movie Noel. In 1999, she moved the studio to Peel St., in Montreal’s lively downtown core. she also took on more roles and responsibilities, making San Tropez Studio one of Canada’s most well-known Latin dance schools and producing The Montreal Salsa Convention now on its 18th year. Her philosophy of life is largely inspired by dance. We all have a dream we yearn to achieve, and we need to choreograph our every move to make it happen.
