In the beginning, it was all about the dance.
It was my job to create the music and choreography.
But once the music came along, I began to see a new reality in the world.
People started to notice the art, and I began getting more calls from music industry agencies.
I became a DJ, then a producer, and finally, a video producer.
At the same time, I discovered my passions: dancing and making music.
Since then, I’ve been on tour, performing at festivals around the world and selling my own music.
It’s been an exciting journey, and it’s taken me to places that I wouldn’t have been able to otherwise.
–Eli L. Smith, New York City dance producer and producer of Dance Academy
