Dear Friends of Omega,

It's been a rough winter here in NYC, but that gives us all the more reason to dance for joy when spring finally arrives, and we do love dancing for joy!

We have two upcoming performances to share, as well as details about an exciting weekend with our founding director and sacred dance pioneer, Carla De Sola. We hope you'll join us for one or more of these events, either in person or in spirit!

With blessings for a life-giving spring,
Becky, Katie, Martha, and Margaret
