Our Story

We’ve loved every minute of our journey

Our dance studio started in a three car garage

In March 2012, Guma' Imahe was formed as Natibu Hacha in a three car garage in Graham, WA. with 24 students.

We moved to the Asia Pacific Cultural Center

In July 2012, we outgrew the three car garage, and made a partnership with the Asia Pacific Cultural Center in South Tacoma.  Since then, this has been our home.

Our Evolution

After one year as Natibu Hacha, and wanting and image for ourselves; we were given the name Imahe.  Two years later in 2015, after an intense workshop hosted by the Guam Visitors Bureau,  Guam Chamorro Dance Academy, and PIPIT, we were then given the name of Guma' Imahe.  Guma' Imahe has grown to 85 members.

We Become A Recognized Guma’

In 2020, Guma’ Imahe was established as a Guma’ recognized by the Government of Guam and I Fafa’någue Bailan CHamoru Tribal Council.

We Celebrate 10 Years!!

In August 2022, Guma’ Imahe celebrated it’s 10th Anniversary with a sold out recital at the Mt. Tahoma High School in Tacoma, WA.

We are very thankful to all of you who have supported us these past 10 years.
