A first-class BA (Hons) degree in Performing Arts at London Metropolitan University led Omari to perform for 7 years in the West End and international touring productions of ‘Stomp!’.During this time, Omari choreographed, directed, performed, and produced a varied reel of dance on film work with Screendance production company, The Motion Dance Collective, which he founded in 2011.

As an independent choreographer and dancer, Omari has created works for Google, Britain’s Got Talent, Weetabix, Stanton Warriors, Greenpeace UK, Diabetes UK, and ADAD (Association of Dance from the African Diaspora).

A graduate from the world’s first master’s degree in Screendance at London Contemporary Dance School (LCDS), Omari went on to become associate lecturer in Screendance at the University of East London, University of Lincoln, and LCDS.
