Company History

I think of dance, and all the arts, as bridges between the visible and invisible world of the spirit.
— Carla De Sola

The first company of its kind, Omega Dance Company was founded in 1974 by Carla De Sola to express the spiritual-social-healing dimensions of dance; to explore inner aspects of movement integrated with the world’s spiritual resources; to bring dance into religious observances and in concert for all settings. After a 33-year residency at The Cathedral of St. John the Divine in New York City, Omega currently ministers as artist-in-residence at The Church of the Village on West 13th Street and 7th Avenue.
