At 95, Therrell Smith has an enduring passion and love for dance
A dance instructor since 1948, Therrell Smith has dedicated her life to introducing as many people as possible to the amazing world of dance. At 95-years-old, she volunteers at local schools and teaches classes at her studio in Northeast Washington. Smith is a local celebrity who has danced in New York and Paris, but her passion lies in giving back to the community. “That’s what keeps me going, the children,” says Smith, who does not plan on retiring any time soon. She is currently planning a celebration for her dance studio’s 65th anniversary.
