Darryl Smith

Darryl was born in Bronx, New York and moved to Aurora, Colorado in 2005. He started dancing at the age 11 by participating in different local dance studios specializing in contemporary and hip hop across the cities of the Bronx, Manhattan, and later the Denver metro area. Feeling bold, strong, beautiful, and fierce have been an astounding influence on Darryl's dance style. Darryl is a leading choreographer for the outstanding local hip hop team Academy of Raw, he's been a member since 2010. Doing so, has given him opportunities such as competing locally as well out of state and also professional performances for Tinashe World Tour, Pepsi, Mumuration 2013-2015, Block Party, and also performing for local benefit performances such as Foodies and Breweries & Shakehouse in Denver. Darryl also teaches locally and out of state (Hi-Def Dance Academy, Vegas, Distrct LV, Vegas and Dance Zone, Vegas). Dance has influenced Darryl to always work hard for results, and have loads of fun doing it. Darryl promises to keep the energy in his classes high, and share what he loves most. Just how he would say it "You better work!". He looks much forward to meeting you!
