Cher Peadon aka “MsL8nite” is based in the Dallas/Fort Worth, TX, USA area.
Cher initially entered the west coast swing world in the late 80s as a competition dancer. A four-time U.S. Open Champion, a Dallas Dance Hall of Fame recipient and a multitude of championship titles from around the country, she retired in 2010.
During her competition days, she was also involved in the music. Observing the best, in her mind, Mario Robau, Jr, she learned how to cut music and from there…off she went.
Cher started doing her DJ workshop three years ago. Her first, held in Dallas, was so successful, she began offering it around the country and as far away as Melbourne, Australia. She has also mentored several DJ’s that are currently DJing on the WCS circuit.
