Serene Wong was born in Newport Beach, CA, and began her early ballet training at the Huntington Academy of Dance. She received the majority of her pre-professional training at the International Ballet Academy in Kirkland, WA, where her performance highlights include Lucy in Dracula and the White Rabbit in Alice in Wonderland. In 2020, she attended Pittsburgh Ballet Theatre’s Graduate program and was featured in student showcases, danced in Terence Orr’s The Nutcracker, and performed locally with Shana Simmons Dance. Serene has attended summer programs with Houston Ballet, Philadelphia Ballet, American Ballet Theatre, Pittsburgh Ballet Theatre, and Oklahoma City Ballet. Serene is grateful to be back in the Pacific Northwest and exploring movement in her first season with Spectrum Dance Theater.
