What we do
Omega believes dance and movement have a particular power for evoking and revealing the sacred. Our performances and workshops aim to help others—whether as dancers, movers, or observers—discover this power.
The company is in residence at the Church of the Village on Manhattan's Lower West Side, but we minister to communities of varying faiths throughout the New York City metropolitan area. We have also collaborated with the National Cathedral in Washington, DC and presented performances in California.
Omega ministers to worship communities by heightening and/or deepening the worship and prayer experience through movement. This may include performances of stand-alone meditation pieces within a service, dances that augment existing parts of the service, or leading the congregation in simple gestures.
In concert, Omega’s works present the audience with an opportunity to explore themes of spirituality, social justice, and other sacred topics.
Weddings & Events
We would love to talk to you about how dance can enhance your special day. Omega has repertory available for everything from a contemplative prayer service to a joyful wedding, anniversary, or birthday celebration.
Omega offers several workshops that lead dancers and non-dancers in exploring movement as a tool for discovering more about and enhancing their own sacred journeys.
If you are interested in learning how Omega can bring dance to your place of worship or event, please contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
What is "sacred dance" anyway?
To quote our friends at the Sacred Dance Guild, "sacred dance is any type of dance that is done with an intention to connect with or communicate something about the sacred, however that may be understood by the dancer or the choreographer." Read more here.
