Gaga/people Classes are open to people ages 16+, regardless of their background in dance or movement. No previous dance experience is needed!
Gaga is the movement research developed by Ohad Naharin (ISRAEL) over many years, parallel to his work as a choreographer and the artistic director of Batsheva Dance Company.
Gaga/people classes last for one hour and are taught by dancers who have worked closely with Ohad Naharin.
Gaga/people classes offer a creative framework for participants to connect to their bodies and imaginations, increase their physical awareness, improve their flexibility and stamina, and experience the pleasure of movement in a welcoming, accepting atmosphere.
Teachers guide the participants using a series of evocative instructions that build one on top of the other. Rather than copying a particular movement, each participant in the class actively explores these instructions, discovering how he or she can interpret the information and perform the task at hand.
