Alfred Smith travelled the unorthodox path of dance of no formal school training, but learning on the job. Originally, from Utah, he first started dancing in Hip Hop/Breaking. Alfred long since moved to Denver to join Kim Robards Dance. Over the years he has danced with APEX Dance, and Ballet Ariel where he started to develop more focus to Ballet training, which is a huge influence of his Contemporary Dance style. Alfred is the artistic director of CocooLotus Dance, and is in his third season as a dancer with Thrive Ballet.
