Once she relocated to Hawaii, she performed in “Ragtime” at Diamondhead Theatre, “The Colored Museum” with Jeanne Herring, and “Intimate Apparel” with Evolve Theatre, among many other performances. In addition, Shervelle is a competitive ballroom dancer. She competes in International latin ballroom dances which include the Paso Doble, ChaCha, Rumba, Samba and Jive and also, Smooth Ballroom dances which include Waltz, Viennese Waltz,Tango, Argentine Tango and Foxtrot.
