Who We Are
The Sacred G’s formed in 2014 as a street dance collective that utilized the art of dance and sacred movement practices to empower the body, inspire the mind and enrich the link to Spirit. We’re a multicultural, versatile group of conscious art-makers who have hailed from differing life paths. Our spiritual disciplines make us healers, yogis or other practitioners. Inspiration from our upbringings has brought us to transcend our art into meaningful, resonant messages for humanity. Just as the right picture can instill harmonic feelings, thoughts, emotions and change, so can movement, spoken word, music and community. We offer Hip Hop dance workshops, choreographed street dance shows and more. We seek to share our light with intentional communities, the transformational festival culture, and cultural events.
Events (& Covid-Friendly Performance)
The Sacred G’s is available for booking. We have been wearing masks since before it was cool. Above all, our wearable LED technology is capable of abiding by the ever-changing CDC regulations and social circumstances. Offering performance and custom created entertainment, we strive to be safe and amazing. We would love to hear about your event and how we may fit into it.
In the not so distant past we produced and co-produced events that brought communities together. Event management, promotion, decoration, DJing, MCing and other artist liason work, we have nearly filled every shoe possible. This will happen again soon. Until then, the best way to stay in the know is via our social media channels.
Unique future-ancient dance fusion experiences; any combination of choreography, technique and/or conceptualization of Hip Hop dance styles and spiritual movement practices. Each member of The Sacred G’s has their own style and practice, so the movement workshops vary, depending on which styles they are interested and capable in teaching. Workshops may draw from street dance styles such as B-Boying (Breakdance), Popping, Waving, Animations/Robotics, Street Dance and Grooves foundations, Chicago Footwork and Social Dance. One workshop may identify and explore the connections between a street dance style and spiritual movement practices including Yoga, Kundalini Yoga, Qi-Gong, or Tai Chi. Imagine a unique approach to dance and meditation, as movement techniques and combinations are taught, to shift the shape of the body and its relation to the space around and within. Another workshop may strictly focus on the aspects of any one Hip Hop dance style. Some of The Sacred G’s even offer weekly or pop-up classes. Check out The Sacred G’s calendar and social media for upcoming workshops and classes.
Improvisation & Freestyle
Much of our training comes from the streets and from the arts of improvisational movement and freestyle dance. Many of The Sacred G’s, however, have received accredited university training and degrees. We revere in getting on stage and ‘healing it’ (instead of ‘killing it’) during live and electronic musical acts, especially when the artist’s overall vibe resonates with our messages and intentions. Similar to our choreography, we include acrobatics, Hip Hop dance styles laced with elements of our spiritual movement practices. We have danced with Com Truise, The Polish Ambassador, Phutureprimitive, Thriftworks, Kaminanda, Purity Ring, SaQi, Steve Aoki, Diplo, Minnesota, Supervision, Michael Menert, Eliot Lipp, Govinda, Love & Light, Paul Basic, and dozens more.
Ambient/Roaming Character Work
Choreography, structured freestyle and raw improvisation. We may be isolated, roaming or interacting with attendees, installations and other surroundings. Our characters embody various themes, including psychedelic ninja or elemental protector, or 80’s Bboys & Bgirls. Embodied by specialized costumes, gestures, tasks, movement and dance, our themed roaming characters are non-verbal storytellers. Similar to day roaming characters, our night roaming characters go by the alias The Illuminated G’s––LED-suit dancers who seek to share our light (literally) with intense visual stimulation from world-class, state-of-the-art LED suits. Human/Robot statues, roaming characters, or special creatures with site-specific tasks.
Synchronized and syncopated Hip Hop dance styles and spiritual movement fusion. Our shows have met audiences at events inside small churches and Bar Mitzvahs, as well as on main stages at events like the 30,000+ patron festival, Lightning In A Bottle. Cross-cultural events and corporate events. Choreography may include street styles such as Popping, Animating, Tutting, Chicago Footwork, and Breaking, and it may be done to poetry and spoken word, or in par with hand balance, and acrobatics. We offer an eclectic mix of the visually stunning, from flips to spins and emotionally-engaging. As we seek to deliver on a deeper level too, our works hold message for healing, inspiration and empowerment. We create the kind of settings that may strike with a melange of the joyous, the silly, the sincere, the dynamically explosive and the harmonic, leaving trails of love, light and awe behind in memory form.
