Seraka Dance Company is a professional performance troupe composed of belly dance artists from St. John’s Newfoundland. The group is known for combining their precise technical skill, creativity in movement, and beautiful costuming to create a unique and elegant experience of non-traditional belly dance.
Founded in 2010, the all-female company is inspired to learn dance movements from a variety of sources to create their own interpretation of belly dance which respects and takes inspiration from the past. Seraka blends western dance concepts with repertoire from Tribal Fusion, Eastern European, American Tribal Style, and the oriental classics. The result is a truly modern and engaging style of fusion and contemporary belly dance.

This years show is exploring the idea of change, facing fears, challenging the norm, and growing in the face of the unknown. We’re using the concept of space (even aliens) as a loose basis and starting point for choreography development, and we’re working with the cast of dancers to meld and explore how each of us relates to, or reacts to, being challenged in that way – by external forces, unknown changes, “alien” circumstances to our lives.
It’s been a weird, wild, and downright thrilling ride as we’ve been working the pieces, refining the movement qualities, and staging these pieces. We’re so excited to share with you.
After discussing with the class(es). I’ve decided to amend the scheduled for the remainder of the winter session, effective today 19 March 2017.
An email will be sent to students who’ve paid up front for classes to discuss refunds & shifting payments.
