Marie Smith started dancing at the studio as an adult nine years ago and we quickly realized that she was a natural. She excels in Tap, Jazz, Liturgical Lyrical and Hip Hop. She joined the CDF staff assisting with combination classes. Marie has advanced on to choreograph and team-teach hip hop classes with her colleague Tammy Moore. She also continues to assist Shanda Eskew with choreography for a tap duo which has won numerous awards. Her quiet demeanor is in contrast to her bold dance moves and innovative choreography. We are excited to have her very talented children Rachel and Ryan.
