Serena1Belly Dancer Tribute 1/25/12: Serena Wilson (New York, NY) original Tweet 9/23/11

I will be posting some of my original Dancer Tributes in WordPress, only the early ones that were in Twitter only, not WordPress.  Back when I first starting posting the dancer tributes on Twitter I only had 2 subscribers.  Now that I have more, I realized that a lot of people missed my early dancer tributes.  But as I am reposting those, I will also keep adding new content for topics like Dance Choreography, new Dancer tributes, etc.

I had the pleasure of taking a dance workshop with Serena in Lincoln, NE.  It was such an honor to meet her in person and have a chance to study dance with her.  I had a copy of her first book, The Serena Technique of Belly Dancing and it was a valuable resource to me in my dance journey.  It it nice to meet a very famous dancer in person, and she was so down-to-earth and friendly.  How cool was it that Serena had her own TV show!  She was so fabulous!  I’m also lucky to have 2 music cassettes by Scott Wilson.

This is my tribute to the lovely and very talented Serena Wilson.  So glad that we met on this dance journey.
