Suhaili Micheline graduated from the Victorian College of the Arts in Melbourne, Australia, as the Most Outstanding Dancer among the 2005 graduates, the 31-year-old has been kicking up a storm in Malaysia and abroad. Awards and recognition have been swiftly pouring in. Some might recognize when she burst into the limelight as a finalist on 8TV’s first season of So You Think You Can Dance. While other children were playing with toys or scribbling on walls, little Suhaili would be at her mother’s ballet school, listening to Tchaikovsky, or watching videos of full-length ballets. Glued to the television for hours, she eventually picked up some of the choreography in Giselle, Sleeping Beauty, Nutcracker and Swan Lake. Her activities revolved around dance, dance, and dance. Among her notable credits for the year include Pan Productions’ Cabaret, where she had to train non-dancers to dance, Dua Space’s Men, Women where she had to change the way the dancers moved, Kula Lumpur International Arts Festival’s Nasi Ekonomi, Five Arts Centre’s Cheras The Musical!, And TerryandTheCuz ‘s Skin, which was featured at the Georgetown Festival in Penang. The icing on the cake was her collaboration with Australian Lina Limosani’s A Delicate Situation, which was staged at the Adelaide Festival Centre last year. The riveting duet with Suhaili as one of the dancers, was performed to critical acclaim and nominated for the 2015 Australian Dance Awards for Outstanding Achievement In Independent Dance. Originally developed in Malaysia, A Delicate Situation was also nominated for three awards at the 7th Boh Cameronian Arts Awards.
