LAMAR COUNTY, MS (WDAM) -

A nationally-known choreographer and television celebrity was in Hattiesburg Saturday, to conduct an intensive workshop at a new Oak Grove dance studio. Victor Smalley hosted a series of classes at On Your Toes. Smalley stars in Dance Moms: Miami, a new reality-TV show about the day-to-day events at his Miami-based Stars dance studio.

Saturday's workshop brought in young dancers from four different states.

"There's only so much I can do in a little bit of time, but if I can just inspire someone or help bring confidence to a dancer that just feels like giving up, then I did my job," Smalley said.

"My goal has been to bring as many (teachers, choreographers) as possible to the Pine Belt area and to provide as many opportunities as possible for these young dancers," said Jennifer Odom-Townsend, owner of On Your Toes. 

Smalley will make another trip to Hattiesburg in September to conduct an advanced workshop.
