Belly Dancer Sheena is an entertainer with heart and soul.
SHEENA HALL B.Sc. Hons. DTD MC MA
Daughter of a Russian aristocrat and an Irish officer, Sheena started classical ballet when she was only four.
When she was 6 she had her stage debut in Swan Lake.
At the tender age of 10 Sheena transferred to ballroom and became national youth champion with 16 and also enjoyed Disco dancing, Tap, Latin and attended 2 years drama school in Vienna.
Later in Turkey where she spent over 2 years teaching ballroom, Sheena was introduced to belly dancing and got the bug.
She fell in love with the music and the passion of dance and then trained to become a professional belly dancer.
Not long after she developed her own unique style which has been influenced by Ballet and Ballroom alike. But she kept faithful to her first true love "Turkish Cabaret".
She is unconventional and uncompromising in her style, which led to some very harsh critics over the years (a rebel on the dance floor), yet she always stayed true to her ambitions and has earned herself the affectionate title of "The Duchess of Dance" many times over!
Since then she has performed in her capacity as first class Belly Dancer, in Turkey, Greece, Germany, Ireland and the United States (incl. Hollywood and Las Vegas) -
on Stage, on TV, Theatre and in several Movies.
Teaching a year at the David Lloyd Leisure Club Port Solent, she has now settled down in Portsmouth UK, to spend more time with her family and is only taken limited overseas invitation.
Sheena holds a B.S.c Hons. Degree in Computer Science, a Master Degree in Psychology and a professional Dance Teacher Diploma Master Class.
She is a passionate and certified Skipper in her free time and has given up her profession as a Computer Scientist to devote herself to dancing and local charities full-time.
Sheena is also a favourite with the media, either with her popular Belly Dance Classes (Oxyrobix) or her tireless work for charity, which includes her own annual Charity Dance Extravaganza “The Sheena Dance Show”
Sheena and Katherine Jenkins hit the front page headlines performing at the PSP Southampton Boat Show opening day (Press Day) and switching on the Christmas Lights with Steven Arnold (Ashley from Coronation Street & Dancing on Ice) in Portsmouth Commercial Road.
She has been guest starring on One World Radio, Express FM, BBC Solent and filming with the BBC for Creative Productions, done several TV Commercials, guest appearances on Portsmouth TV and appeared on the John Bishops Show alongside Strictly Come Dancing judge Greig Revel Horwood and other celebrities.
She has teamed up with several large event organisers, and is actively involved in the "Dance in the City" Network supported by Portsmouth City Council, member of PDi (Portsmouth Dance Initiative) in association with New Theatre Royal and co-organiser of 'imPact' Portsmouth Dance Festival, which was launched in July 2011.
There is only one thing she loves more than dancing:
Her family, which includes Ginger Tiger Cat Charlie, her pride and joy!
