Pop legend Madonna has inspired many millions of people across the world, but while some have merely been inspired to check out her latest album and buy Madonna music t-shirts, others have flown closer to the light – such as dancer Sofia Boutella, who is soon to be seen on the big screen across the UK when Street Dance 2 is released at the end of the month.
At the film’s London premier recently, Sofia revealed how “amazing and inspirational” Madonna is, after she performed with her on the star’s Confessions and Sticky & Sweet world tours. The 29-year-old Algerian-born French dancer also said that working with Madonna was a dream come true, adding: “She’s very inspiring. She taught me a lot about going after what you want. She’s an amazing woman.”
Madonna is not the only music star who Sofia has performed with, however. She has also toured with The Black Eyed Peas, Mariah Carey and Gwen Stefani, as well as appearing in music videos with Cesaria Evora, Chris Brown and Jamiroquai. Her most recent music video appearance was in the promo for Michael Jackson‘s posthumous single Hollywood Tonight.
