Learn about Charlene "Chi-Chi" Smith, from professional dancer Charlene "Chi-Chi" Smith in this Howcast dance video.


Hey everybody, I'm Charlene, also known as "Chi-Chi." I've been dancing for about, almost 7 years now. I've danced for Salt n' Pepa, Shakira, LL Cool J, Mary J. Bilge, Snoop, Diddy. I got into dancing after college. I went to Rutger's University and I graduated. And the only thing I knew is I wanted to try dancing. Didn't really know that people do it for a living. So I dedicated one day a week to something towards my creative career and ended up in a dance class. Which led to a rehearsal, which led to a show, which led to work steadily for the past nearly 7 years. I do a lot of television, which I love, and I also love to teach. I teach in Canada, I teach all over New Jersey, I teach in New York, I teach in Mexico, and soon I teach in the Dominican Republic. And I just love sharing my gift with the rest of the world who shares that love, whether they do it professionally or not. And that's me. If you want to keep up with me, you can follow me on Twitter at dancechi or check me out on Facebook,, one word.
