Ellery Smith

Dance Instructor

Miss Ellery grew up dancing in North Dakota, and received her most formational training at Gasper’s School of Dance and Performing Arts. At the age of 16, she relocated to New York City to pursue classical ballet and study at the Joffrey Ballet School, and later a smaller Russian ballet program. She finished her studies in the conservatory at Steps on Broadway, where she was lucky enough to fall back in love with classic jazz, contemporary, and receive a well-rounded education as a dancer and musical theater performer. Miss Ellery has performed regional at the Laguna Playhouse and the Wick Theater, in shows such as A Chorus Line, Pippin, and Cinderella. She is passionate about bringing the same joy and freedom she feels telling stories and exploring movement to her students! We are so excited to have her join our staff this year!
