NATALYA SMITH

DANCER

Born in Surrey, Natalya began her dance training from a young age at the Italia Conti Arts Centre. During her final years she was introduced to contemporary dance and instantly gravitated towards the openness and diversity it offers. With continued support from her teachers, she furthered her training and completed a BA(Hons) in Contemporary Dance at Trinity Laban.

Throughout her training at Laban, Natalya has had the pleasure of working with choreographers such as Charles Linehan, Lizzi Kew Ross and Naomi Lefebvre Sell. In her second year, she was able to perform alongside students from the Julliard School in a restaging of Merce Cunningham’s “MinEvents”, by Robert Swinston and Daniel Squire. In addition to this, in 2019 Natalya had the opportunity to perform a duet as a part of the BBC Young Dancer Contemporary Final, and later in the year was lucky enough to be a part of London Fashion Week.

Natalya also loves teaching and being inspired by her students at Italia Conti Frimley. In her spare time, she loves to travel with friends as well as spending time with her family and two beagles.
