Sofia Gumerova. Elegance and Energy

“A tall, and with noble elongated lines, she perfectly embodies the modern type of the Petersburg ballerina - elegant and aristocratic.” - Ballet Magazine.

Sofia graduated from the Russian Ballet Academy in 1995. And from the same year, she entered the troupe and to 2016 she has been the first soloist of the Mariinsky Theater. In 2010 Sofia received the title of honored Artist of Russia.

Technically strong and sculpturesque she performed not just a classical ballet repertoire, but also contemporary choreography. Sofia’s repertoire included more than 30 roles!

Nowadays Sofia Gumerova works as a pedagogue and gives master classes all over the world. Our students will have a brilliant opportunity to work out with this great teacher during the Istanbul summer course.
