About Ruric-Amari:
Ruric-Amari is a performer, teacher and choreographer. She is director of the Samovar and Samovar East dance companies and the Ruric-Amari Dance studio, located in the Clifton Center in Louisville Ky. She is a frequent performer at weddings and parties, university functions, city festivals, CD release parties, major charity galas, television programs and dance concerts. Hundreds of performances at dozens of venues have earned her a reputation as an extraordinary dance artist and entertainer.

Ruric-Amari founded the Samovar Dance Company in 2005 to provide students with a performance outlet. Samovar has evolved into a high-energy performance group bringing authentic and experimental belly dance to a wide variety of venues in Kentucky, Indiana and Ohio.

Samovar East was formed in 2010 to present authentic Bollywood and group dances from Ruric's Indic Idiom project. Indic Idiom, now in its third year, was inspired by the life work of La Meri, an American dancer who mastered Indian dance during her tours in the East and went on to perform it in the West to the music of Bach and several of the great ballets.
