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.

Fav part of QDC: My favourite part of QDC is how inclusive it is and that it creates a space for everyone. QDC has created a community of people with all levels of dance experience and makes everyone feel welcomed and appreciated. It is so much fun to be apart of this environment QDC has developed over the years, and I am so excited to be apart of it for another year.

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.

Favourite dance move: I love a good groove moment to really get into whatever combo I’m doing.

Choreographer you would love to work with: If I could work under any choreographer who would it be - JaQuel Knight because he has worked with Beyonce and that's all I need in my life.
