2pm to 4pm – Drum Solo Delight

Are you ready to rock, roll and shimmy, like Serena?

Through Serena’s dance, every sound played is brought alive in a vivid and visual portrayal of the music – no note left unturned, no rhythm undiscovered, no accent untouched.
Beyond the dance, Serena’s drum solos are a journey crossing continents and cultures; infusing the rhythms and movements inspired from Africa to America, through Asia to the Southern Seas, but always returning to the heart and soul of Egypt.

Join Serena in her continuing journey and explore a whole new world of rhythm, movement and dance.
