Hershae Chocolatae

Hershae Chocolatae

Hershae Chocolatae

“Hershae Chocolatae is a truly high energy performer known for her unique dancing abilities. She performs flips, splits and does mind boggling spins. She was likened to a whirling Tornado by Quasi in Cincinnati.” –Jim Burrington (hubby/promoter)

Making 99% of her costumes herself, it is evident to see she is an excellent seamstress. She has quite a few characters in her repetoire such as: RuPaul (a stunning likeness), Mary J., Lil Kim, Donna Summer, Diana Ross, Patti Labelle & others.

Her range of music is all over the place. She can perform some of the hip hop rap stuff, some dance, ballads, and even some dixie chicks. She is very good at drawing the audience into her performances by focusing on them and using her mannerisms and facial expressions. She is also great on the mic as she has hosted shows regularly over the last couple years.

She was recently named “the Best Out of State Performer” by the Performing Artists of Detroit. Also named the “Best Dancer” by Stiletto’s Lounge in Inkster, MI (just outside Detroit). She performs all over: Toledo,OH; Inkster, MI; Detroit, MI; Grand Rapids, MI; Flint, MI; Battle Creek, MI; Youngstown, OH; Cincinnati, OH; Columbus, OH; Sandusky, OH; Fort Wayne, IN; & many other locations.
