Serena Cuevas: The Other Serena in the Gatorade G2 Commercial.
Following my post on the new G2 commercial with Serena Williams and Serena, a dancer, I received a few comments about the "other" Serena, including inquires about her full name. My contacts at Fleishman-Hillard revealed the full name as Serena Cuevas.
>I Googled her name and discovered that she's the founder director of Deseo Dance Company , located in Pacific Beach,California, near San Diego. She's a New York native, and here's some more info about her background, from her page on Deseodance.com.
Serena has always had salsa in her blood. She began dancing at 11 years old, performing and training in Ballroom dance. In 1999 she came to beautiful San Diego and immediately felt the intensity of the salsa scene. She says, 'It was amazing and so beautiful I wanted to be a part of a dance that I could finally have fun with!' Since January of 2003, Serena has danced with San Diego's most popular salsa companies.
Deseo incorporates Salsa & Mambo technique with highlights from Jazz & Modern dance. The company promotes agility & athleticism through all of their dancers and is proud to represent San Diego!
Cuevas has a few videos on Youtube, and I'll keep an eye on her name to see if she signs any more TV or movie deals in the near future.
