Q&A with Joanie Smith

Joanie Smith

Q: How did you start dancing?
A: I started dancing because I couldn't sing, and once I danced my first role as Batman in high school I never looked back.

Q: What’s your favorite memory of The Cowles Center?
A: My favorite memory of The Cowles Center was talking with Sage and John Cowles on opening night. They were positively vibrating with excitement.

Q: What show are you excited to see at The Cowles Center this season?
A: In a perfect world, I would see everything our extraordinary dance artists in the Twin Cities create. I've already bought my tickets to Zenon, Stuart Pimsler, and Mixtape.
