Raederle Sterling has been with Fandazzi since the very beginning. She has been performing her entire life and started working at the Minnesota Renaissance Festival at the age of about 3 weeks old. She has taken on a number of roles, but found her true home dancing with fire. Raederle is a trained dancer, percussionist, and martial artist. She has been trained in a wide range of arts; including such dance styles as Scottish dance, tribal fusion, musical theater, and holds a black belt in Tae Kwon Do. Raederle graduated with degrees in Theater, Dance, and English. She currently teaches English to inner city high school students, and works very hard to integrate the arts into her work. Raederle is married to a fellow performer/IT guy, and together they have two children who are already showing signs of having the artist bug.
