People’s Choice Soloist
Raena comes to the Heart of Bellydance from Dallas, TX where she began studying this art form several years ago. A year and a half ago, she began working with David of Scandinavia in order to deepen her knowledge base and expand her performance skills. In March, she decided it was time to step out of her comfort zone. While Raena has previous competition experience with the two Dallas troupes, Sisters of Arani and Nadi El Raks, this is her first time competing as a soloist. Bellydance gives the usually shy Raena an opportunity to explore her creative side and she is excited to share her dance.
