Response from Amara Arts Project:
Thank you so much! I did not realize until we were leaving but my brother and sister both graduated from the school for which you were fundraising! It was an absolute pleasure. Feel free to send us any pictures or video from the event, we would really love to have them.
Amara Arts Project is absolutely fantastic! Not only her dancing was flawless but she interacted with audience members of all ages! She was energetic, vibrant and made the Hispanic Heritage Month Celebration at Southern Illinois University School of Medicine one no one will forget! I highly recommend Amara Arts Project for you future event. She is professional and goes the extra-mile to meet your expectations! Thank you so much!

Influences & Inspiration
We look to Viver Brasil ((link hidden)) as a philosophical model. We love their authenticity and dedication to sharing the strength and beauty of Afro-Brazilian culture with their community.
We are inspired by the gorgeous samba goddesses of Brazilian Fantasy ((link hidden)) and their unwavering commitment to displaying Rio-style samba respectfully and with poise and grace.
