Ragin Smith is a dance artist based in Brooklyn, New York. She works to develop deconstructed narratives by stringing together contexts of movement, poetry, visual art, and music—plugging into the interest sparked by pecking at dormant places. She has performed works by Kyle Abraham, Brendan Fernandes, Valeria Gonzalez, Andrea Miller, Elizabeth Roxas-Dobrish, Loni Landon, Troy Ogilvie, La Intrusa Company, Anthony Morigerato, and others. Ragin studied composition and modern dance, as well as business management, at Marymount Manhattan College. She is currently a member of the Wet Hairy Women Collective, Hivewild, Pacing Bodies Dance Company, and Alison Chase Performance Group.
