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.
