Andrea Farese is our wonderful Competition  & Shows presenter

Originally from Houston, Texas, growing up with a wealthy family, benefitting from the finest Preparatory Schools and a top notch University Education, Andrea graduated near the top of her class with a B.S. in Marine Biology at the age of 19. After finding labwork claustrophobic, she landed an entry level sales position and by the age of 23 was working across the country training sales and service professionals.

Sixteen years later, with a high paying job, a beautiful home and an expensive sports car, Andrea’s life felt very empty. Her schedule consisted of about 110 hours a week working in sales training and development; full time out of a Training and Development firm in Longwood, Florida and part time with leading International Personal Development Coach, Anthony Robbins. With a high stress level, she realized she had little personal gratification from her full time job other than money.

In 1999, she gave it all up and 6 months later became associated with Middle Eastern Dance through a relationship with a Restaurateur. Soon she opened a studio and encouraged her boyfriend to upgrade the restaurant from a performance vantage point. At Andrea’s urging they built a formal stage, put in a state of the art sound system and put in a real dressing room. He also allowed her to produce and run some artistic stage shows. One thing we should keep in mind is through her early years and to this day, Andrea’s mother Lenore has played a key role in the management and business development of several leading Ballet Companies across the USA including an extensive stint as President of the Houston Ballet and President of the Yuma Ballet.

In 2000, Andrea became restless and decided to start selling belly dance merchandise at events. For her first effort, she flew to Portland, Oregon and vended at Double Crown Belly Dance Awards where she was captivated by the style and grace of a very special performer, Aziza. After working in vending and observing the dance climate and business of the USA, she started producing events in 2001. In 2002, she sponsored Aziza of Oregon, now Montereal, Canada for Belly Dancer of the Universe and then brought Aziza for her very first full weekend workshop ever in Orlando in 2002 with an audience of 86 excited students!

At the end of 2002 she started managing Aziza’s career and their relationship benefitted both of them significantly over the next 8 years. Aziza is now one of the most recognized artists worldwide, and Andrea’s company Stellar Advantage (formerly Babylon Breeze Productions) is known for Belly Dance Masters an annual program which has spanned 16 years with top notch shows and workshops geared to serious dancers and students of cabaret and fusion arts.

She continues to develop strong programs and intensives with her current team of master level talent, Karen Barbee of Texas and Silvia Salamanca of Mallorca, Spain, now Houston, Texas. Also represented by Stellar Advantage is one of the brightest rising talents in the art today, Mia Sha’uri of Puerto Rico.

The mission of Andrea and Stellar Advantage is two fold. First, to offer the very best training available to students of the art of Middle Eastern Dance and Fusion Arts and second, to raise the bar of how professional performers and instructors are perceived by dance enthusiasts and the general public.
