Sherlyn’s performances always leave audiences mesmerized. A blend of breathtaking sensuality and precisely crafted movement, her artistry is in a league of its own.
Offstage, she was the first teacher in Malaysia, founding the highly successful Sirocco Secrets Dance Company. Sherlyn is often referred to as the mother of South East Asian bellydance, having taught and numerous artists in the region, who often look to her for advice and guidance.
Sherlyn is famous not just for her oriental style, but for her seemingly effortless ability to beautifully fuse genres together. She is trained in styles such as jazz, flamenco, Danza Mora and many more.
With an underlying goal to help dancers discover their full potential, Sherlyn also co-founded South East Asia’s largest annual festival, Raks By the SEA. The festival is unique, debuting many international bellydance masters for the first time in South East Asia along with the best instructors regionally, as well as promoting tourism and friendship among ASEAN nations.
Despite the success of Raks By the SEA, Sherlyn wanted to go one step further to help dancers in SEA develop. Sherlyn has also co-founded International Oriental Dance Alliance SEA (IODTA-SEA). It is a formally registered entity in Singapore that aims to provide certified education and training for Middle-Eastern Dance teachers.
Despite all the accolades and invitations she receives from around the globe such as Europe and most of Asia, Sherlyn remains humble,warm and generous- an artist’s artist, and a treasure in the Asian bellydance world.
