Ana Sofía REYNOSO Barnard (SHE/HER)

Ana Sofía was born in Morelia, Michoacán, Mexico and her very first memory is dancing in her mother’s kitchen. At 16 years she began her formal dance studies in San Diego California. A proud graduate of The Ailey School Certificate program, Ana Sofía was also a trainee for three years at The Joffrey Ballet School. She has performed works by Alvin Ailey, Earl Mosely, Robert Joffrey, Gerald Arpino, Africa Guzmán, Amy Hall Garner, Vernard Gilmore, Tyler Gilstrap, Judith Sanchez Ruiz, Edivaldo Ernesto, Greg Dolbashain, Winston Dynamite Brown and Nia Brantley. In addition, she has performed and been a solosit in many classics such as Swan Lake, Don Quixote, A Midsummer’s Night Dream, Cinderella, La Vivandiere, and the Nutcracker. Additionally you can see her in various plays, films, indie projects, ads and the TV show “This Is Us” on NBC. Ana Sofía loves to give back the information that has been generously passed on to her through incredible teachers and mentors. She loves teaching and learning just as much as performing!
