Light dimmer question

Here's the problem, I'm wanting to install two light dimmers in our church. On in the auditorium and one upstairs in the balconey. I need them to be completely independent, so if I am in the auditorium I can fully dim the lights, or if the fellow up stairs needs to dim the lights (eg during a play) he can independently do so. These are incandecant lights.

If you were doing this in your house, there would be no problem. But unless you are a licensed electrician, you should not (and cannot legally) do electrical work in your church.

Unless this is new construction, a remote wireless dimmer is probably going to be the simplest answer. A big factor in the design is the amount of wattage to be controlled, so figure that out before you do anything.

Heed John's warning.

Unless you are licensed as an electrician, do not do this. You are risking far too much by doing any work of this sort.
