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. Sherley developed a love of Traditional Haitian dance at the age of 11 but soon learned that many people in her community had turned away from their heritage, mainly in reaction to negative stereotyping of Haiti in the larger mainstream culture. 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.
