Angela Smith Choreography
Angela Smith Interview
Angela Smith grew up in Northern Idaho, dancing with Festival Dance Academy and performing around her community. Having recently graduated from Brigham Young University, her work has received both nationwide and international recognition. Of note, she was selected as a rising choreographer by Sarasota Contemporary Dance Company and her work with BYU’s DancEnsemble company was chosen for the gala concert at the American College Dance Association in Slippery Rock, Pennsylvania. Her piece Closet Prayer, which she created while at BYU, won its division at the World Dance Movement in Castellana Grotte, Italy. Angela approaches her choreographic process with passionate and playful curiosity. She enjoys reimagining the boundaries between dance and theater—crafting stories that are both abstract and specific through movement, mime, and intricate soundscapes. She presently lives and choreographs in Utah County, and is applying to graduate school to continue researching her interests in dance and storytelling.
