In my first workshops with Serena Ramzy, her teaching was so clear that I took away a wealth of knowledge and material with me. When the opportunity arose to study with Serena on a one-to-one basis, I took it without hesitation. Serena guided me through a challenging period in my dance development when I felt very “stuck”. Serena encouraged me to draw on my extensive training in other dancing and harness their techniques to evolve my individual style. She opened up a new world of bellydance technique, musical and cultural knowledge to me. During my time with her, I embraced the opportunity to become a full time bellydance professional teacher and performer. 10 years on and I am now hosting Serena for workshops and still very proud to call her my Master Teacher.
