Queen Mabsy is the dancer persona of Hawaii based multi-media artist Michelle Jericho Poppler, whenever she steps on stage. Mabsy is best described as a professional quirky renaissance woman. She loves the medium of Burlesque because it is an empowering art form for a cultural feminist, who wants to perpetuate and innovate celebration of the sacred feminine. Besides dancing with Cherry Blossom Cabaret since 2008, she performs professionally with IONA Contemporary Dance Theatre, is a graphic artist, animator, experimental filmmaker, and was crowned Miss Vamp Hawaii in 2015 while she was 6 months pregnant with her daughter.
Mabsy has been classically trained in ballet since she was five, so by far her longest running professional experience has been on the stage. She expects to continue her side career in dance as long as she can breathe despite all odds and obstacles. Because to Queen Mabsy, dancing is part of her life's blood.
