Amy Smith graduated with a BFA in dance from Temple University with concentrations in modern, jazz and ballet. She was a modern dance scholarship student at the Pennsylvania Governor's School for the Arts and was asked back for several years to assist.  Amy continues to train and take class at Broadway Dance Center, NYC and throughout Philadelphia.


Amy has performed at the Suzanne Roberts Theatre as part of Koresh Dance Company’s Come Together Festival, the Koresh Artist Showcase, at The Producer’s Club in NYC, at The Laurie Beechman Theatre in NYC, at the Kraine Theatre in NYC, at the Teatro Centro Civico Eloy Alfaro in Guayaquil, Ecuador and has opened for BalletX in Philadelphia, to name a few.


As a choreographer, Amy has directed her own dance company, The AccoMpanY Dancers, which performed at Temple University, in Atlantic City, and throughout New Jersey.  Her choreography was presented at the Capitol Fringe in Washington D.C., at the Koresh Artist Showcase, Koresh’s Come Together Festival, in many theaters in NYC and throughout Philadelphia.


As a teacher, Amy pushes her students rhythmically and artistically while focusing on dance as a performance art, not a competition. 

“Meaty choreography was not an issue for The Lady Hoofers Tap Ensemble dancing Reinvention with choreography by Theresa DiSipio and Amy Smith...loved the percussive sampling of a famous, and very difficult, Gregory Hines group riff”
