TESTIMONIALS

Billy Smith was the first professional guest artist I invited to set a piece for my dancers at our Performing Arts High School. Billy’s residency was professional from start to finish. He held the students to a high standard but also  made the whole experience a joy! The piece itself was challenging, gave my students more to strive for, and more to continue to hone in once the residency week was complete! Billy gave thoughtful and respectful feedback to all the students. Billy provided more than choreography: he gave lasting lessons on technique, musicality, and professionalism. Billy left a profound impression on myself and all of my students, and we hope to have him back for class and residency soon!
