Tall, with a proud mien and nobly extended lines, she is the ideal embodiment of the modern type of St Petersburg ballerina — refined and aristocratic.
Honoured Artist of Russia
Master classes Dance Open: 2015
Graduated from the Vaganova Academy of Russian Ballet in 1995, right after that joined the Mariinsky Ballet and abides it since then. Sofia Gumerova danced many lead parts of classic repertoire, being an artist of multiple skills - on the one hand she performs canonical roles such as Giselle, Kitri, Nikia, princess Aurora, and on the other hand she always interprets roles with a rich exotic hue (Zarema, Phrygia, Mekhmeneh Bahnu) in an interresting way.
Sofia Gumerova combines an active stage career with teaching activities. She not only works as a pedagogue at the Vaganova Academy and holds master-classes all over the world, but also works as an Artistic Director of the Children's Ballet School KASOK.
