Sophia Atkins aged 16 was born in Watford, London. She began dancing at the age of 6 when she was encouraged to take part in an after school club by one of her teachers.

Ten years later Sophia has travelled nationwide with both ‘Clann Na NGael’ and the ‘Kelly Hendry School of Irish Dance’ to compete as a soloist.

She has taken part in many championships and by the age of 14 she formed part of a World Champion Ceili Team, was placed both 14th and 19th at the World Championships, and also came 6th in Britain.
