When Serge hugged you, he meant it deeply. He taught with love and was so proud of every stride each of his students made - no matter how small. I’ll never forget the way he always managed to make me feel safe, supported and proud. Watching him dance was a thing of beauty and he so generously shared that passion with many. What a heartbreaking loss for everyone fortunate enough to have met him. A rare human. He looked into your eyes and somehow you just knew you were friends. My deepest sympathies to Serge’s family and friends. 💔

My heart is broken. Yesterday we lost one of the team. Serge your talent was unmatched and it was such an honor to work with you and call you my friend. Rest easy my friend, I know you’re dancing up a storm up there ❤️

A bright light. A brilliant dancer and a patient teacher.
Thank you for being such a wonderful creative collaborator and friend.
You will be greatly missed, but we know that you’re somewhere out there tearing up a dance floor. RIP.

So very sorry to read this.
I didn’t realize that he was ill. So young (33)!
May he Rest In Peace.
