Stunning and Innovative!

We have had the pleasure of seeking Amartia over the past three years at Art of the Belly. She is absolutely captivating and breathes new life and fresh perspectives to her traditional styles. Pushing the envelope in both artistry and costuming, Amartia is a true joy to experience!

We have also been fortunate enough to have Amartia as a long time, repeat customer for our photography studio. She is always extremely professional and arrives at every shoot well prepared and with new ideas.

Prepared, Professional and a Pleasure to watch.

I booked Amartia as a headliner for my monthly bellydance event. When she dances you can tell the joy she feels in sharing this dance, and her years of experience both on stage and in a restaurants. Amartia entranced our audience, while also handling technical issues with our CD player with humor and grace.

I have also purchased several gently used costumes from her, so I can attest to their quality, too.

A GREEK GODDESS

Amartia brought a sense of class and took the event from average to high class. She style of bellydance was enjoyed by all and inspired many people (men & women) to join her on the dance. There was never a dull moment. I'm highly recommending her for all future events.

Dedicated to her art!

I have the pleasure of being Amartia's stylist (makeup) for many a photo shoot and performances. Being up close and personal with Amartia over the years, I've come to know how dedicated she is to continually "upping her own ante" to provide the most professional, original, and skillful entertainment around. Paying attention to her own personal details gives her the freedom and the joy to pay equal attention to her audiences and her clients. When you hire Amartia, you'll get a true, professional artist who will go beyond your expectations, every time.

Great Entertainer

I have seen Amartia a few times at the local restaurant (Bombay Nights) and she has never disappointed. She interacts with anyone who is willing, the kids just love her, and she seems to really know her stuff. I personally love her Zills (had to ask to know), and I've seen her let the kids try them and play along. I would highly recommend for any event.

Great young lady and very professional performer

My family had a birthday party for my 77 year old father in June 2011. We had 32 people ranging from 21-80 years of age. We called Amartia to entertain our guests and family members. She was magnificent. She came in on time, she was dressed beautifully, she had her music, she was friendly and comfortable. Amartia performed 2 sets of dance routines with amazing grace and splendor. Amartia is very engaging, inviting our guests to join her in her wonderful dance, and many did. We traveled to Egypt and saw many professional belly dancers, Amartia was on par with all of them. Everyone had a good time. We would never hesitate to invite her again.

A Mesmerizing Performer

I saw Amartia dance at the Celebration of Cultures event at the Bel Air Armory. She was absolutely mesmerizing! When she began dancing, everyone in the room stopped what they were doing and watched her intently. Amartia shows incredible passion and talent in her dancing. Additionally, her costumes are beautiful and her music is perfect. They help to set the mood and draw the viewer into her hypnotic and creative performance. I cannot recommend her highly enough. Hire Amartia and you will not be disappointed. She is absolutely first class!

Amartia The Greek Bellydance Bombshell!

Amartia has lived in Baltimore her entire life. She is a Baltimore native of Greek descent, so she not only relates to the urban vibe of the city but to her Greek half as well.


Amartia is very familiar with Greek town in Highlandtown and all of the food, festivals, music and culture it has to offer! As a youth she was a member of the award-winning Evangelakia Dance group of Annunciation and then a member of the Hellenic Coins of St. Nicholas. This gave her the vast knowledge of Greek music and folk dances that she has utilized in her performances.


Amartia has danced in numerous events in the Baltimore area as well as clubs and restaurants. Her very first public gig was the Zeeba lounge in Federal Hill. She has since performed at Amer’s Caf (before its sad closing), Tobacco center caf, D’Tandoor Indian Cuisine, Silk Road bistro, Neel’s Kabob house, Sizzling Bombay, El Rodeo Mexican Bar and Grill, The Hub sports bar, and Bombay nights. So as you can see, she is well versed in Baltimore’s restaurant scene! She has also not neglected the local baltimore belly dance scene and has participated and headlined in as many local haflas and shows as her busy schedule allows.


Between her Greek heritage and her vast experience with live audiences in Baltimore, entertainment is her middle name! Amartia is not just a talented dancer but a great performer as well. She has an original blend of cuteness and humor that has allowed her to relate to all audiences. Whether Ethnic or American, Amartia’s smile and energy is contagious, “..You look like you’re having a blast..” (audience member)


Amartia has dazzled guests with her energetic dancing at weddings and her reckless abandon losing herself in Greek music. Greek music speaks to her soul and always brings out her inner OPA! She is able to incorporate traditional folk steps into her more modern movements; so no matter the age range of the audience, they can relate. She is also able to participate in the line dances, which as anyone knows, is a KEY part of any Greek celebration.


Amartia is a consummate professional. She continues to hone her craft in order to be the best dancer she can be. No matter where she performs, her urban Greek Baltimore vibe goes with her.
