Lowell Smith arrived in New York as a scholarship student with the Joffrey Ballet, then performed with the Eglevsky Ballet. The New York Times in 1976 hailed his performance with the Eglevsky as an exotic visitor from Java in “The Nutcracker” as “sinuously rendered.” At 22, he joined the Dance Theater of Harlem.
