Join us for an hour of Haitian dance classes with Sherley Davilmar and La Troupe Zetwal!
SHERLEY DAVILMAR (ST. FORT) is the artistic director and co-founder of La Troupe Zetwal, a multicultural dance group that performs traditional Haitian dance with live drumming and percussions. She was born in Haiti and immigrated to New York with her family when she was four years of age. Determined to re-educate her peers and honor her heritage, she took up the formal study of the dance with Haitian teachers while still in high school. As an artistic ambassador of an island whose name translates to “mountainous country,” Sherley Davilmar and La Troupe Zetwal aims to share Haitian pride through dance, music, and her special skill of storytelling.
