About Greta Smith
Three Phrases that Describe my Dance Background:
- I've been at Encore since the beginning - my very first year of dance was the year Alvina who took over the studio and renamed it Encore!
- In 22 years as an instructor, I've taught everything from ballet and pointe to hip hop, but never modern. I also received my certification in Autism Movement Therapy.
- BC (before children), I spent several springs choreographing the spring musical at Cocalico High School. My first show was Bye Bye Birdie, and my last was The Wiz. Or maybe the Wizard of Oz- we did both!
My Role at Encore Dance Center:
Dance Classes I Teach:
I remember really weird things, like who did what recital routine 20 years ago or the theme of the recital in 1994, but can't remember to stop and pick up milk on the way home.
Favorite Encore Recital:
Flashback, 1996, my senior year. It was Encore's 10th anniversary and we commemorated it by re-staging routines from past recitals. I got to dance in all of my favorite dances that the "big girls" did when I was younger! Best senior year ever!
When I'm not at Encore:
I'm running my travel agency, driving the mom taxi service, or maybe helping out with PTO projects. I LOVE to travel, but I'm also pretty happy to spend Saturday night watching a movie with my family- 2 dancing daughters, my son and my hubby. And Ginger (our dog).
