In this workshop you will discover Katerina’s efficient method to conquer the fear of improvisation through clear technical explanations of music and movement. The guided tour through various styles of music usually concludes with you being able to independently dance to a simple Lebanese pop song. The workshop also includes explanations of more complex Egyptian classical music.

Katerina Shereen is a multi award winning oriental dance artist. Miss Bellydance of Europe 2010 from Berlin and Bellydancer of the Universe 2011 in Egyptian category and Taksim category from Long Beach, USA.
Her dance career started when she was 19 and moved to London to work in local middle-eastern clubs. The experience of working with live musicians developed Katerina’s interpretation skills and knowledge of the theory of Arabic music. By the age of 21 she was already one of the most prominent dancers in London, performing at glamourous events for members of Middle-Eastern Royal families and VIP’s (Elton John, Quincey Jones, Sharon Stone to name a few), travelling as a performer to Paris, Milan, Dubai, Gambia and other countries. After moving back to her hometown, she soon started travelling and teaching at international festivals all around the world.
She is focused on Egyptian classical style and folklore. Katerina greatly admires the Egyptian dance style of the 1940s, 50s and 60s due to its classic interpretation which she undertakes to perform.
