For the Love of Dancing
Born on December8, 1993, AnnaSophia’s first love wasn’t always acting. She competed in dance competitions and gymnastics for 5 years and even won an Irish dancing award when she was seven years old! She quit to focus her full attention on acting but still loves to dance in her spare time. The first time she performed was at age five on the stage of her church in hometown Denver Colorado!
In a trademark pretty summer dress
We are loving AnnaSophia’s feminine dresses and simple accessories. Not one to go trend-crazy, she’s a big fan of pretty dresses, casual jackets and sparkly heels. In her downtime she’s just another teenage girl in denim cut-offs and jeans and tees. Her shiny hair, either worn loose or in a simple bun, is her best accessory!
