Cheri Smith

Cheri is extremely proud of her 17 year connection with Fancy Feet Dance Studio. As a true triple threat, she continues to work professionally as a performer, choreographer, director, and consultant. Cheri has extensive performing credits in the fields of theater, film and television (too numerous to list here.) However, choreography and staging, directing, project and artist development, and especially dance instruction remain passions of hers.

Cheri's background encompasses all genres of dance, including, jazz, ballet, modern, contemporary, tap, hip-hop, ballroom, lyrical jazz, Broadway/Musical Theater, and many forms of ethnic dance. As a bonus, you can rest assured that when working with Cheri, your body is in great hands, as she is also a certified Pilates instructor.

From Pulitzer prize winning Broadway shows, to prime time sketch comedies and network dramas, her professional venues have provided her with many extremely valuable, and varied experiences. This is enhanced by the fact that she is a Summa Cum Laude graduate of UCLA. There, her rigorous studies included numerous dance education, production, research, and technique courses, as well as a wide range of offerings outside of the Arts. With Cheri, you get the unique advantage of working with a balance of the artistic and the academic.
