In Portuguese:
Sofia Boutella nasceu a 6 de Abril de 1982.
Ela é francesa, de origem Argelina (Argélia). Veio da Argélia para França aos 10 anos. O pai dela é Safy Boutella, compositor e coreógrafo reconhecido.
Ela começou a dança muito cedo: antes de vir para França, fez dança clássica. A seguir, praticou ginástica rítmica (continuou dança clássica para a melhorar) durante muito tempo e até alcançou o campeonato francês.
Depois, ela decidiu começar a dançar hip-hop e estava certa quando fez essa decisão porque as suas capacidades físicas depressa a guiaram para ganhar várias batalhas.
Ela foi encontrada por Blanca Li, famosa coreógrafa, que a levou a participar no seu filme “Le Défi”, em francês (2002), onde Sofia interpreta Samia. Depois participou em alguns pequenos papéis em duas séries televisivas francesas: “Permis d’ aimer”, no papel de Lila e “Cordi, juge et flic”. Sofia fez também parte do grupo de dança Vagabond Crew.
Mas a dedicação aprofundou-se quando mais tarde a Nike decidiu fazer dela um ícone para mudar a imagem do público feminino: mais música, mais dança, mais desporto… Sofia fez sensação das duas vezes que fez publicidades (para a Nike).
Sofia trabalhou com o coreógrafo Jamie King, que já trabalhou com algumas estrelas americanas. Desde então, ela é uma das dançarinas (e dançarinos) de Madonna e pode ser vista nos seus vídeoclips mais recentes, “Hung Up” e “Sorry”. Ela também dançou no vídeo da Rihanna (S.O.S), para a Nike.
