Sophie Millspaugh – Noblesville High School

Sophie Millspaugh, a senior at Noblesville High School (NHS), has taken her love for dance and turned it into something she can teach to other inspired dancers.

She knows that the more she practices, the better she will get, which is something she passes on to her students. She continually motivates them to be the best dancers they can be.

Sophie teaches high school advanced tap, and has also co-taught preschool combo classes in the past.

“The Combo 1 dancers are a preschool class that includes both tap and ballet,” Sophie said.

She also spends a lot of time competing in dance recitals.

“I dance in recitals in the winter and summer, as well as compete throughout the winter with both a dance team and studio,” Sophie said.

She also received the Noblesville Millers Girls Dance Team Girl of the Year award.

Sophie Millspaugh“Miller Girl of the Year is voted on by the team and is awarded to a member who best represents the values of the team, and was seen as a leader throughout the season,” Sophie said.

In a separate success, Sophie and NHS freshman Aliya Warren were named state runners-up for their duo effort at a solo and ensemble championship. Sophie also placed seventh in the state competition with her senior solo.

Sophie is planning to attend Indiana University in the fall, and dance on the Indiana dance team.

“I plan on majoring in marketing through the Kelley School of Business,” she said.

Millspaugh has some valuable advice for younger dance students.

“Keep pushing yourself and being proud of your growth over the years, even when it gets difficult,” she said. “Eventually you will look back and appreciate the little moments in training, with your friends and with your teachers, that helped you grow into the person you will become.”

Millspaugh loves and appreciates everything Noblesville has to offer.

“I love the small-town charm, from the homecoming parade and back-to-school events to First Fridays and concerts at Federal Hill,” she said. “Noblesville has been a great place to grow up.”

Robin Meunier-Millspaugh, Sophie’s mom, said she couldn’t be prouder of Sophie.

“I am immensely proud of Sophie and the effort she puts into everything she does,” Robin said. “She not only wants to be the best version of herself, but she wants the best for her class, team, personal relationships, performance groups, class project groups and the organizations she supports. She goes out of her way to lift up others and encourage them in everything she involves herself in. I have told both of my girls that I realize I often take for granted how fortunate I am to have them as my daughters.”
