Sharisah Brathwaite/ Dancer/ Performer:
I am currently a student of UWI Barbados where I am pursuing my Bachelors in Dance and Theatre.
For as long as I can remember I was born and raised in the church parents have pastored for the past 28 years - Kingdom Life Assembly. I gave my life to Christ at a very tender age and I’ve never been the same.
I have and will always have a passion for dance, my goal is to use the gift God has given to me, to humbly bring hope, peace and joy to those all around the world. I am His vessel!
I had been with Praise Academy of Dance for about 13 years and taught there for 2 1/2 years
It’s amazing what the power of God can do, and I can’t wait to see how He will move in our young people in this season.
