Serena’s teaching has had a huge effect on the way I dance. Being able to understand the music and how to translate it into movement is so important for Bellydance and Serena teaches this to the very highest level. Having learned with Serena I can connect with the music beyond just putting together a sequence of moves. Serena has taught me how to be an independent dancer and figure out my own creative projects.
