Serena Cuevas - Deseo Dance Company, San Deigo, USA
Starting in New York City, Serena has been dancing ballroom & Latin club dances for 16 years. Over the years, Serena has competed in some of the most prestigious competitions including ESPN World Salsa Championships World Latin Dance Cup and World Mayan Bachata Competition. Serena has been invited and featured around the world in International Latin dance events to include some of the most prestigious salsa and bachata congresses. Today Serena is based in San Diego, California and directs Deseo Dance; an exclusive ladies styling company.

Deseo is a company Serene created for two purposes: to highlight the strong desire of the dance, and to bring certain jazz/modern techniques to salsa dance. Deseo certainly stands out as unique because they do not dance ‘classic salsa.' Deseo's choreographies are based around energetic, clean, & passionate movements.

For those who have yet to see the Gatorade G2 Commercial; Serena was contacted by Gatorade in January of 2009 to became the ‘Serena' to be featured with ‘Serena'; Serena comments "The G2 campaign is about overcoming adversity. Giving all you've got to overcome hardship in your life and achieving success as a result. Salsa is all about overcoming. It went from hundreds of years of rhythmic body movements from tribal dances in Africa & Cuba, to the ESPN World Salsa Championships we have today. Salsa is the perfect example of amazing progression and success!"
