About Sophia Ravenna
Sophia Ravenna is a fusion belly dancer in the Seattle, WA area. She began dancing in Tucson, AZ in the mid 2000s. Her primary teachers in AZ were Cari and Tiffany of Anaya Tribal, and Jolie Roberson, although she studied with just about everyone she could, in a variety of styles over the years.
Upon arriving in WA, she immediately set about finding more belly dance classes, and is currently studying with Tempest and Kat Welsh. She can often be found on stage or in the audience at various local events in Seattle, Tacoma, Olympia and any other town within easy driving distance, including Portland OR when she feels like a road trip.
Sophia has a workshop addiction and loves to travel to attend events. She has studied with numerous instructors over the years but has found the most inspiration from Mira Betz, who taught her to take belly dance more seriously and dig deeper; Rachel Brice, who taught her how to practice smarter; and Lady Fred who inspired her to finally master the ¾ shimmies that have been annoying her for far too long. She is currently working her way through Rachel Brice’s Elements training.
In addition to belly dancing, Sophia enjoys costuming and makeup. Outside of dance, her favorite thing to do is curl up with a good book and a fluffy cat.
