Team Member Description: 

Sandie has enjoyed over 25 years of experience in the Entertainment and Cruise Line Industry.

Born and raised in England, her love of dance began at an early age, where she was mesmerized by the “Tarantella” performed at a community venue, and eagerly signed up for dance lessons! As a teenager, she enjoyed performing in productions of, The Sound of Music, Oklahoma, South Pacific, Carousel, and also performing in numerous Pantomimes through the United Kingdom.

After graduating from Lincolnshire College of Art, she obtained the opportunity to dance abroad, in Majorca and Jersey in the Channel Islands with Dick Ray Productions. Her talent brought her to the United States to perform on Carnival Cruise Lines with Miller Reich Productions. Then to Royal Caribbean as a Dancer on board the Sovereign of the Seas, followed by the Nordic Empress and Sun Viking where she was Ship's Hostess.  

During a short break from the ships, Sandie performed once again with Miller Reich Productions at Miami Beach's “Fontainebleu Hilton” working with Latin greats, such as Celia Cruz, Charo, Jon Secada, and also toured with KC & the Sunshine Band.

Returning to the Sea, she performed on Costa Cruise Lines Romantica and  Victoria, then onward to Royal Caribbean Cruise Lines to dance on board the Legend, Grandeur and Enchantment of the Seas, as well as the Inaugural Cast of the Voyager of the Seas.

Currently, Sandie enjoys working as a Rehearsal Choreographer and Install Director for Royal Caribbean Productions and is thrilled to be a member of the Oasis' “Hairspray” Rehearsal Team and  Audition Tour Choreographer and Coordinator.
