Here she will guide you through the waters of scheduling, negotiating, performing, and finding an establishment. You will get examples of real-life scenarios and be able to ask all the questions you have been curious about in order to avoid mistakes and thrive in your own area. Get ready to boost your belly dance business!

As a child, Amartia started out Greek folk dancing and stumbled upon bellydance one day at the gym…it was love at first sight! Since then she has become the reigning Jewel of the Nile, has been featured in both Fuse and Zaghareet magazine and is known as the “Carey Bradshaw of costuming”.
