How did you start as a dancer and a choreographer?
I am originally from Rwanda, East Africa, and then I moved to the U.K. I’ve always been dancing for fun, as a way to express myself. I’m an only child so I don’t know if I did it for attention, but if there was ever a party, family gathering, or anything like that, I would always try to gather up my friends from a young age like, “Hey, let’s do a performance.” And then, you know African parents are like, “Hey, do that thing that you do.”And according to Nylon Sherrie Silver’s big moment arrived when Donald Glover, also known as Childish Gambino, dropped his music video for “This Is America.” The visuals went viral almost instantly, thanks in no small part to the vivid choreography put together by Silver.
She won Choreographer of the Year at the 2018 MTV VMAs for her efforts and she hasn’t stopped moving since. The Rwandan native is using her success to improve the lives of people all over Africa. She’s opened a shelter for homeless children in her home country and started a program for former sex workers to learn entrepreneurial skills. When we spoke for Off Beat, she wasn’t shy about the fact that hiring her can literally “save someone’s life.”
Then one day I got to perform for the president of Rwanda which is really cool, obviously, and that kind of opened the doors for me. It’s so random, but the Rwandese embassy in England recommended me for a film that they had heard about.
I auditioned, got the part, and that started an acting career for me. But I was still studying, and eventually went to university. While there I was like, What can I do? I don’t want to work a normal job. And I was like, I can dance and tried that. I started putting videos on YouTube, and then here we are. My video got seen by the right people.
