Seraka Dance Company

An Elegant Approach to Belly Dance in St. John’s Newfoundland

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.

Vanessa, Karen & Susan are travelling to Toronto to be part of The Lavish Project 2016 – an artist in residency program directed by Audra Simmons & Heather Labonté of The Dark Side Studio.  Working five 10-hour studio days with 12 dancers from across Canada to prepare and create pieces for “harmony/discord” on Sat Apr 2 at ROUND venue in Kensington Market.

Since we’re not in province, make sense that classes will be cancelled. The final classes for this session are: Mar 20, Apr 10, Apr 17 & Apr 24. See you at The Dance Centre!

Due to this year’s July and August being warm and summer-like, registration numbers are low for a number of classes in the summer schedule.  Sadly, this means some classes will be cancelled, including the following four:

  • Technique L1 (Tuesdays @ 7:45-8:45pm)
  • Technique L2 (Wednesdays @ 6:30-7:30pm)
  • Stagecraft (Wednesdays @ 7:45-8:45pm)
  • Fundamentals (Wednesdays @ 7:45-8:45pm)

We are still taking registrations for VEILS (Tue Aug 18 & Tue Aug 25 @ 7:45-8:45pm) and for FUNDAMENTALS (Tuesdays @ 6:30-7:30pm)

If there is enough interest in occasional workshops, they will be scheduled as requested.  If you have an idea for a class or workshop you’d like to take, we welcome you to contact us with your ideas and belly dance cravings.
