After Amalia's husband died in 1962, she returned to her family to raise her children. After her children grew, she briefly returned to Show Business. Now fully retired, she does do Appearances, lectures, Fund Raisers, etc.
Amalia was not a stripper, altho she performed her act at times in some Burlesque houses and Folies, it was her dancing the Latin dances that made her the attraction. Her style was based on a clothed show girl, usually Latin solo dancing using the Rhumba, Mambo and Cha-Cha rhythms, using feathers and /or clothing to accentuate her movements at times.
