Sophomore Sophia Burghardt discovered her passion for dancing at the age of two. Burghardt recalls it as "...just something her parents put her in." Little did she know she was tip-toeing into a life long passion. Eighteen years later, Sophia is a member of the Vole’ Ballet Club at Penn State.

Burghardt credits her many years in the performing arts for the development of her discipline, character, and creativity. "Dancing just gives me the opportunity to express myself in a way that words cannot."

Burghardt plans on expanding her love of dancing by learning new styles such as hip-hop or tap dancing in the future.
