Alex Smith

Pre-advanced hip hop Teacher 


Pre-advanced hip hop will be a class where everyone can learn and succeed. I want everyone to get what they want out of the class creatively and physically while also being met with new challenges every week. This way I can ensure to create a positive atmosphere for everyone. But the most important thing to bring to this class is an open mind so we can all have a good time. Come ready to learn, with an open mind, and to have fun.

What does dance mean to you? Dance is a good time and gives us a way to have fun with people and share what we love to do!

Most embarrassing dance moment: Falling right on my butt during my solo at nationals and crying immediately while on stage, people joked about it longer than I’d wished.

Most memorable dance experience: Finally getting my quad in my solo way back in the day was pretty hyped about that…

Picture this: you fall on stage and the photographer managed to get a shot of you mid fall. What would you caption the picture? Dance is art and art is dance.

What is the theme song of your life? ALL PITBULL SONGS
