Dance Orientale by the Lovely Zareena


ZAREENA’S ascent to popularity with audiences is a story which has its genesis in her 15 years of ballet training beginning at the age of 3 and the inspired teaching of renowned dancer and teacher SARDIS. Her journey through the art of Greek, Russian, Spanish, Hawaiian, Tahitian and Jazz dancing combined with her skill and passion as a percussionist have now led her to the drum driven rhythms of Middle Eastern music and dance.
