Description

Born & raised in Pittsburgh, Pa, Maria Hamer began training in dance & art at a young age.  She was fortunate enough to be raised in a large family  who spent the majority of their daily activities learning & studying  many forms of dance & art. 

In 1992, Maria began her studies in Middle Eastern Dance or bellydance, under her sister Christine Andrews. After 3 years of study, Christine allowed Maria teach small portions of class under her supervision to help develop her training. In September 1995, Christine Andrews, Jennifer Imashev (Ever After), & Neefa Bint Durr  (Khafif) discussed starting a troupe focused on the more folkloric elements of  Middle Eastern Dance or BellyDance.
