Liturgical Dancer, Carla De Sola (From The Spirit Moves, published by The Liturgical Conference, 1977) November 1998, Author's Note, continuing....... I was fortunate enough to have Carla among my friends on the Lower East Side of New York City during the 1960's and 1970's. The first time I saw her, she was dancing the "Magnificat" during a crowded Mass at St. Brigit's Church. Tears ran down my face as I watched -- and I never again saw dance in the same way. Carla, simply, opened the gates. As a recent Catholic convert, she knew that reincarnation was considered heresy, yet she told me once that when she was dancing at a Eucharistic Conference in Philadelphia one year in the 1970's, she was swept into ecstasy and knew in every fiber of her being that she had been dancing like that for thousands of years. If you've ever seen her dance, you'll know what she meant. She totally manifested the joy of dance. [July 2001 addendum: in 1974 Carla founded the Omega Liturgical Dance Company , which was given a home at the Cathedral of St. John the Divine {click on "Arts"} in New York City. She currently teaches dance and Omega Peace Arts at the Pacific School of Religion in Berkeley, California, where she founded another dance company, Omega West .] http://www.az.com/~katrinat/heart/claybea3.htm

The opening quote from Carla De Sola is striking, as is a rich, lengthy, well researched 1997 paper by Merlla McLaughlin, "Sensing the Sacred by Dancing the Divine," that you can click on -- if you have the time, I highly recommend reading this one. http://www.ravenrecording.com/workshop.html

Carla De Sola links dance with spirituality and justice
CTA’s Arts in Ministry referral program brings performing groups together with appreciative audiences. Here’s a profile of an artist who will grace our West Coast National Conference in August.
“I see dance flowing from the sanctuary out into the world,” says Carla De Sola, director of the Omega West Dance Company in Berkeley, Calif. “Liturgical dance comes from the church, and moves us directly into issues of peace and justice.”
It was through the Catholic Worker movement many years ago that she found this connection between dance, spirituality and justice. It led her to establish New York City’s Omega Liturgical Dance Company in 1975. Ten years ago, Carla branched out to California to begin Omega West.

Carla will lead “Dance and the Living Spirit” at the CTA West Coast National Conference in Los Angeles, Aug. 3-5. She will gather participants in an experience of music, readings, and dance. “When we engage our whole being in dance and prayer,” she says, “we find ourselves alive with motion, rhythm, shape and dynamics. We experience dance integrally with our religious imagination.”
In addition to directing Omega West, Carla teaches at the Graduate Theological Union in Berkeley, where she has developed classes in dance and scripture, liturgical dance, sacred dance for healing, women’s spirituality, and PeaceRites, under the auspices of the Center for the Arts, Religion and Education. She has traveled all over the U.S. and abroad. Her video, “Movement Meditations to the Songs of Taize”, is available through Paulist Press. Call 1-800-218-1903. Her book,“PeaceRites”, can be ordered through the Oregon Catholic Press at 1-800-548-8749.
