Born in France, Sophie has been a Principal at Scottish Ballet since 2008. She has won a number of awards for her performances, and in 2014 she performed at the XX Commonwealth Games opening ceremony to a television audience of millions.

Sophie Martin's Fairy floats with swan-like poise and her precision in the choreography – which, while classical, has an edge of modernism to its odd twists and angles, mirroring Stravinsky's unexpected discords – is a joy to watch.
