Biography

Grounding herself as a dance educator and outreach curriculum designer at Rowland Hall since August 2003, Sofia Gorder is a dancer, choreographer, professor, dance education teacher and curriculum consultant based out of Salt Lake City. She holds an MA in dance from California State University Long Beach, and a BFA in modern dance from the University of Utah. She has served as creative director for a number of dance companies locally and nationally and is well known for executing large-scale collaborations in the arts for social change through dance, film, theater, writing, and performance art. She works with Brolly Arts as a local resident artist on community projects whenever given the opportunity. She's the mother of two children who are really cool, and are likely her most exciting collaborative artistic endeavor yet!
