Lillington teen dances with TV personality

MANHATTAN, NY—Fourteen-year-old Taylor Smith of Lillington had a dream come true Saturday.

She had a ballet lesson at the world famous Broadway Dance Center, 221 W. 57th St., and danced with renowned actor. Georgia Engel who played Georgette Franklin Baxter on “The Mary Tyler Moore Show” from 1973-1977. Engel also appears on the situation comedy “Everyone Loves Raymond.”

Engel just happened to be in the same class as Taylor and the very soft-spoken but beloved actor spent some time with Taylor and danced along with the rest of the class, about 30 students.

“Let’s take the picture in the hall way,” said the gracious Engel, “because when we go into class we will be colleagues.”

Taylor Smith, the daughter of Michael and Barbara Smith of Lillington, began dancing when she was six. She now dances regularly with the Cary Ballet Conservatory, 3791 NW Cary Parkway, Cary.

“It was the highlight of our family trip to New York,” Taylor said. “We saw the Empire State Building from the Observatory, visited Central Park and FAO Schwarz toy store and even saw the Rockets in “The Radio City Christmas Spectacular, but dancing at BDC was the best!”
