The Sacred G’s is an artist collective dedicated to conceiving, creating and presenting dance and multimedia performance art works that inspire and empower civic change and intrinsic connection to Self, with a dual focus on expanding the discourse of street dance and spirituality, and bridging the gap between communities and the street arts.
Who We Are
The Sacred G’s formed in 2014 as a group of professional street dancers and street artists who utilized the art of dance and spiritual 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. The common ground is that we come from the underground Hip Hop, street, and club communities. Our love for and investment in real Hip Hop, street and club dance culture has led us to professionally battle, perform, teach and create dance curriculum, and produce events that allow our communities of practice to interact, build, and thrive. Our spiritual disciplines have led some of us to double as healers and yogis. Inspiration from our upbringings brought us to want to transcend our art into more meaningful, resonant messages for humanity that would in turn inspire the next of kin. Over the years we have evolved into an arts collective that does contracted choreography, dance and multimedia performance, masterclass instruction and event production. Culminating our individual experiences, we create platforms for intentional communities and transformational experiences prosper.

Freestyle / Improvisation
Improvisation is a word used in many traditional Western arts. In the street arts we call it Freestyling. The differences between choreography and freestyle here are that we don’t know what music will be played, how it will be mixed together, or how we will respond to the music. Much of our training comes from years of solo sessions, practicing with our own crews, and training improvisational movement as well as freestyle dance. Such circumstances guide us to generate wild, impulsive, raw performances, with a freshness of energy that choreographed movement does not have. After all, all street dance styles are freestyle dances. We have danced at many festivals and events, and freestyle danced on stage for countless live and electronic music acts. We have also freestyle danced at a plethora of events and occasions.
Interactive 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 dance performance to our own music mixes. Our shows have met audiences at events from inside small churches and at Bar/Bat Mitzvahs, to main stages with thousands of people in the audience. Cross-cultural events, corporate events, and theater productions ask for this the most. Expect our movement to include street styles such as Popping, Animating, Tutting, Hip Hop, and Breaking.
The Founding G’s (The GEOs)
And so it is said, they started out as a small group of 5 passionate dancers, each hailing from various professional backgrounds, who felt called to join forces and perform at a transformational festival. They wore several suits other than dancer, as there were five teachers, two healers, a hand balancer, four yogis, an actor, a singer/rapper, a spoken word artist, and a couple university dance instructors. Already established in their own careers, they knew it was for a special cause, yet they didn’t know quite what to expect. Guidance brought them to that deciding moment on their first night, backstage, together as a thus far unnamed group. A collection of alike intentions and world views. A local movement that supported THE movement. A collective of conscious movement artists. On that winter night, amidst the permission of their ancestors, guides and angels, The Sacred G’s were born.
