“When Seana’s feet hit the stage, her 30 plus years of dance experience shine through…she dances with a level of technical skill and masterful control that can only be achieved after years of study. With a style that is both ethereal and focused, Seana is an in-demand dance artist and instructor.”
Meagan Parrish, Associate Editor
A student of dance since she could barely walk, Seana’s repertoire includes a range of styles, from ballet, jazz, and modern to Bharat Natyam and Flamenco. But it was belly dance that captured her heart in 1993 when she devoted herself to its pursuit. After nearly a decade of study, she began her solo performance career and soon went on to co-found the nationally-acclaimed tribal dance company, Blue Lotus Tribe. Years later, she relocated to Madison where she pursued a degree in Dance at UW-Madison.
A forward thinker and cutting-edge dancer, Seana began teaching professionally in 2004, opening the door to tribal/tribal fusion belly dance to a community yet untouched by its influence. In 2006, Seana began planting the seeds for what would become the city’s premier, award-winning tribal fusion dance troupe. In full swing, Ashar Dance Company has enjoyed their status as Madison’s “go-to” opening act for touring groups such as Beats Antique and Yard Dogs Road Show, and a “must-have” addition to many local large-scale stage shows, such as the consistently sold-out Fire Ball Masquerade.
Since earning her degree in 2008, Seana’s most notable accomplishments as an individual dance artist include her guest artist residency at Beloit College and opening and running her studio, Euphoria Movement Arts. She has recently begun a foray into theater, having been cast by director Michael O’Rourke as Haydee in a staged reading of Count of Monte Cristo at the Overture Center for the Performing Arts. Seana is currently developing works and laying the groundwork for a new dance company – Ashar Nouveau, Theatrically-Inspired Hybrid Belly Dance, cultivating her own signature blend of belly dance with her more western influences – contemporary, ballet and jazz.
