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.

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.

  • Level 1 Studies – good to go as scheduled. No changes
  • Fundamentals – good to finish with our last class tonight.
  • Remaining Spotlight/Combo classes will be cancelled, so that instead of 10-weeks, it was only 5-weeks. This class will not be held tonight.
  • DrillZilla will be modified to a one-hour class from 7:15-8:15pm starting next week (26 Mar), open to Levels 1+.

An email will be sent to students who’ve paid up front for classes to discuss refunds & shifting payments.


If you’re in the market for finger cymbals allow me to suggest the following:

  1. “Arabesque” in brass by Saroyan (smaller, lighter, less expensive)
  2. “Small Grecian” in brass by Saroyan (smaller, lighter, less expensive)
  3. “Afghani” in brass, or silver, or bronze by Saroyan (medium size, slightly heavier, moderate price)
  4. “Ghawazee” in bronze by Saroyan (medium size, heavier, higher price)
  5. “Al Taj” in brass by Saroyan (huge, heavy, expensive, cymbal-of-my-dreams)
