BLACKFOOT — On Saturday, December 1, Magic Smith participated in the Dancing With the Blackfoot Stars event.
Smith was one of the many participating, where he and his partner danced the bachata to the song “All I want for Christmas.”
Smith said he was very surprised and shocked when he was asked to be a part of the event, but was excited because he knew it was something he always wanted to try if given the opportunity.
Smith said his dance partner, Lyndee, was great and very patient with him, as they only had four days to prepare for the event. Starting out he felt as if he had two left feet, and was stiff, but his partner told him to loosen up and practice at home, which he did and it seemed to help.
Smith also would like to thank Tyson Shay and also Randy’L Teton, who were really supportive and were some of the past alumni of the event. He would also like to thank the Shoshone-Bannock Tribes for giving him the opportunity to represent the Tribes in the Blackfoot community. It was a great experience, he said.
