She Defines Soul. Substance. Style (No. 23): Sofia Boutella

((  Written By:  Staff Writer  ))  Sofia Boutella is an Algerian-French dancer who has been at the top of her game since 2006, when she was picked for Jamie King's choreography for Nike as the embodiment of femininity and hip-hop.  Dubbed "the Nile Girl" by Nike, Sofia began studying classical dance at the age of 5.  The Berklee College of Music graduate has danced in music videos (Michael Jackson), starred in television and film (StreetDance 2), and toured with the best (Madonna's Confessions Tour).   Notwithstanding her impressive list of accomplishments, when asked about her greatest accomplishment, Sofia astutely answered:  "I think it's in the future."
