Sadie Marquardt

As one of the most sought after performers and teachers of Oriental Dance (Bellydance), Sadie has visited hundreds of cities in over 40 countries and is the most watched bellydancer on youtube with over 26 million hits on just one video clip alone. Sadie’s fans and colleagues have crowned her “The Queen of the Drum Solo”.

Sadie’s signature styling has marked a new genre and following in Bellydance. Her unique expression fuses together athleticism, grace and precision; attributes instilled in part by training in gymnastics and swimming for 14 years in her youth. In her late teens Sadie took up a new passion, Oriental Dance. As a student, Sadie studied with many reputable Middle Eastern dance and music teachers from around the world. Her first inspiration and mentor in Bellydance was her teacher Joynan from Denver, Colorado. Other key, influential moments in her education include two extended trips to Turkey (including a dance tour with teacher Eva Cernik) where she studied and observed the dance and learned to play the Doombek via master percussionist and musician Souhail Kaspar. Sadie continues to enrich and pursue her education in the beautiful, continually evolving art form of Oriental Dance while staying rooted in traditions. Every year she has the great fortune of attending festivals and conventions with some of the worlds greatest masters and legends of Oriental Dance, sharing the stage with them as well as taking their workshops and classes.

Sadie’s passion for dance, music and culture has inspired her to study other forms of world dance in addition to Oriental Dance such as, Brazilian Samba, Salsa, and Tahitian to name a few. This diverse background coupled with over a decade of athletic training in gymnastics and swimming has given Sadie great command of movement and wisdom of dance that comes to life not only in her inspiring performances but also in her gift to teach and share her knowledge with her students. Sadie has had the honor and privilege of working with thousands of students from all walks of life and cultures around the world. Students of Sadie comment on her down to earth, witty teaching style that breaks down her movements in a way that literally anyone can understand and begin to work with.

Based out of Denver, Colorado, when Sadie is not traveling the globe she can be found teaching her award winning bellydance classes. Over the years she has been a public figure in the Denver scene where she has performed over 300 shows in one year alone at the cities finest establishments, festivals and events.
