Mrs. Venus Strong-Smith - Music and Drama Teacher

“I love taking what adults consider to be noise/awkwardness and turning it into Music and Visual Arts.”

This is my fifth year at Chesterbrook Academy. I obtained my BFA in Theatre Design & Production from the University of Michigan and a MA in Drama/Theatre for the Youth from Eastern Michigan University. I’ve worked with Light Opera Oklahoma, Super Bowl, University of Michigan, Crosstown Theatre Troupe, Dance Companies, as a stage manager, costume designer and stage make-up artist. My instruments of choice is Percussion for both Marching and Concert Band.

I enjoy instructing some of CBA’s enrichment clubs throughout the school year. You can often find me having fun in Fitness Flow, News Media Club, Funky Feet Dance and Running Club.
