Elisa james AKA lady omega
Elisa, aka "Lady Omega" started dancing at the age of three and performed and traveled with dance teams in her youth and teens. Her love of dance progressed to a love of singing and songwriting when she started performing her own original music and dance in 2002 with her internationally renown reggae group, Afro Omega.
In 2015, after taking a break from her band, she decided to return to her dance roots and share her love of Caribbean/Dancehall culture and dance, combining her background in Caribbean dance and culture with current training in dancehall styles. Elisa has been steadily leading high intensity dance fitness classes as well as teen and adult dance classes for the last 3 years. You can find Elisa currently teaching dance classes in Eugene, OR at International fitness, Xcape Dance Academy, Flex Dance studios and Eugene Yoga.
