One Body, One God Dance Ministry is hosting its first virtual show amid the COVID-19 pandemic.

The world has gone virtual since the COVID-19 pandemic and now more than ever content is being consumed online by billions across the world and everyone has had to adapt to this new paradigm.

Locally, here in Jamaica, the creative arts industry has been pivoting, providing entertainment via online channels for thousands, from across the world to enjoy.

One Body, One God Dance (OBOG) Dance Ministry is one such creative group that is making the pivot, deciding that instead of canceling its 9th season of dance concert, te group will be hosting its first virtual show and maybe the first virtual dance production of its kind in Jamaica.

The concert, being hosted under the theme 'The Reason', will broadcast today, Sunday, October 4 at 6pm on OBOG's YouTube channel and website www.obogdance.com 

Co-Founder and Director of the Ministry Charissa Clemetson shared that OBOG Dance Ministry was birthed out of a desire to see a higher standard of excellence raised in Christian dance ministry. The Ministry was started in 2012 by three young dancers/visionaries, including Clemetson, Sherona McAllister and Judene Edwards.

"OBOG is fueled by a passion for God, a love of dance and a longing to honour and glorify Christ in the fullest", Clemetson said.

The concert will feature eight dance pieces showcasing the talent of some 16 dancers who hail from 12 different churches.

She added, "Our ultimate goal as a company is to see excellence presented to God through the amazing gift of dance."
