Last year, I had the opportunity to take two workshops with the elegant and accomplished dancer Serena. What has me coming back for more this time is Serena’s ability to teach belly dance from a culturally and historically informed perspective in a refreshingly accessible way.

Serena knows how to teach, which you can’t say about every professional dancer. Teaching is a skill set in itself, and Serena is always prepared, having fully analyzed her material and logically deconstructed the moves. Her class presentation is clear, intelligible, simply makes sense musically.
