Cherie MarshallVisit Website
Originating from South Africa and as far back as Cherie can remember she has always had a love and passion for music and dance, any excuse to go out dancing from dancing in the comfort of her own home to outdoor festivals in the South African sunshine. Cherie tried many styles of dancing in her school years such as ballet, modern dancing and African Beats but it was not until she moved to England in 2004 that she discovered the Sensational Art of Bellydance, she fell love instantly and knew right then and there she had found her calling.
Dancing is when Cherie is at her happiest she disappears into an exquisite bliss of ecstasy and can remain in this meditative state for hours, the music flows through her and for those moments they are one. This encourages immense creativity within her and toward her dancing.
