Passion. An intense desire or enthusiasm for something. That’s what I have found through dancing, and especially through teaching. I only hope that I can share my passion with each of my students in some way, and encourage them to find what they are truly passionate about.

Emily Smith

Lead Instructor and Discover Dance Instructor

From the moment she walked up the 36 steps into Miss Jill’s studio, Emily could feel something developing deep inside her. She was only 7, but that feeling continued to grow as she learned various dance styles all the way through high school. At South Dakota State University, Emily studied Music Education and Theatre and found every opportunity to dance, performing and choreographing in numerous theater productions. Emily began teaching at BritZa Studios in 2011. She have been blessed to learn from many talented teachers and choreographers including Melissa Hauschild-Mork, Broadway Dance Center, N-House Productions, Louise Taitz, and Richard Smith. When she is not teaching at BritZa, Emily continues to choreograph and perform in theatres.
