Sadie Belly Dancer



Sadie is an International performing artist, instructor and choreographer who is recognized worldwide as one of today's most exciting Belly Dance artists. First seen as a “Rising Star” on BD-TV Vol.II in 2004, Sadie has since released over a dozen instructional and performance videos, has visited over 10 countires teaching and performing and is the highest viewed Belly Dancer on YouTube with 8 million hits on just one clip alone.


Sadie draws upon an innate understanding of movement instilled from 14 years of training in gymnastics and swimming as an adolescent. She began practicing Belly Dance as a teenager. As a student, Sadie studied with many reputable Middle Eastern dance and music teachers from around the world. Some of the most influential moments in her education include two extended trips to Turkey where she studied and observed the dance and learning to play the doombek (Middle Eastern hand drum) via master percussionist and musician Souhail Kaspar, which impressed a great understanding of the varied Middle Eastern rhythms as well as the relationship between the music and dance.



Sadie’s lifelong love for dance, music and culture has prompted her to explore and study other forms of world dances such as, Brazilian Samba, Salsa, Tahitian and more. This background has given Sadie a style that is uniquely hers and a great command of movement and dance that comes to life not only in her inspiring performances but also in her gift to teach. Based out of Denver, CO, when Sadie is not traveling she can be found teaching her ongoing weekly classes as well as dancing at some of the city’s finest restaurants, nightclubs and events where she has performed over 300 shows in one year. She has received accolades such as "The Critic's Choice" by the Denver Post and Westswords "Denver's Best 2006" for shows and dance classes. Other career hi-lights include dancing for celebrities like Will Smith and Kevin Fitzgerald of Animal Planet's "Emergency Vets", TV appearances in a James Bond commercial produced by Starz/Encore and choreographing for and dancing in music videos and musicals.
