Mrs Saffron Smith


I am an experienced Hip Hop and Contemporary dancer, specialising in animation and popping. Having been inspired by a dance teaching trip in orphanages in China, I have developed a passion to use different styles of dance to tell stories with meaning and have a personal dedication to push for excellence in original, gripping and empowered movement. Key achievements since pursuing a BA Dance at Kingston University include BUCS Best Female Dancer Award, 8 x 1st Place Winner in BUCS Competitions, ‘Dance Freer Award' for Kingston University ‘17/18, Move It Capezio Competition winner and Main-Stage performer.
