Serena Spears – Fusion Teacher Serena Spears – Fusion Teacher Serena is a fusion dance performer, teacher, and choreographer from Brooklyn, NY. As a solo performer, she is known for her boundless energy, precise technique, and commanding stage presence. Pulling from her background in a wide range of dance forms, including bellydance, African, Latin, hip-hop, contemporary, and modern, she aims to bring the audience unexpected, yet seamless fusion that captivates and excites. As a group artist, Serena is a core member and principal dancer of Solstice Tribe under the direction of Sera Solstice. She has performed with Sera across the country at festivals including Art of the Belly, Tribal Fest, Tribal Massive, Rakkasah, and Elevation. As she continues to make connections outside of the NYC scene, Serena has begun to attract the attention of tribal fusion artists interested in collaborating. In 2015, she performed in Boston and New York in Bellydance Evolution’s Alice in Wonderland show, with Sharon Kihara in Vegas at the Massive Spectacular, she choreographed and performed an Afro-pop duet with Ebony Qualls which they debuted at Art of the Belly and brought to the Tribal Fest Official Afterparty to rep the East Coast, and she was invited to perform a waacking fusion piece with Karolina Lux at Tribal Fest 15. She is looking forward to many more opportunities for collaborations with other dance artists in the future. As a teacher, Serena brings her students a positive, encouraging attitude, clear explanations of steps and techniques, and extensive and varied dance knowledge. After nearly a decade of teaching weekly Urban Fusion classes, first at Inner Spirit Dance on Long Island and then at Solstice Studio in NYC, Serena decided to stop teaching regularly to focus solely on her personal training and growth. Although she does not currently teach weekly classes, Serena continues to substitute teach for Solstice and is interested in pursuing workshop opportunities and private lessons. In addition to her ongoing training with Sera, Serena studies bellydance intensively with Suhaila Salimpour, Zoe Jakes, Rachel Brice, Sharon Kihara, and Mira Betz. Serena is both Suhaila and Jamila Level 1 Certified and has completed Rachel Brice’s 8 Elements: Initiation. She also continues her movement studies outside of bellydance with regular classes in ballet, contemporary, salsa, tango, Afro-Latin jazz, fire poi, and aerial silks.
