Sadie Marquardt

Sadie is an International performing artist, instructor and choreographer who is recognized worldwide as one of today's most exciting and unique Belly Dance artists. First seen as a “Rising Star” on BD-TV Vol.II in 2004, Sadie has since visited over 10 countries teaching and performing, has released over a dozen instructional and performance videos and is the highest viewed Belly Dancer on YouTube with over 6 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 a child and teenager. She began practicing Belly Dance nearly a decade ago. 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, Hula and Flamenco. 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 such as a James Bond commercial produced by Starz/Encore and choreographing for and dancing in music videos and musicals.
