Gaga is the movement research that was developed by Ohad Naharin throughout many years, parallel to his work as a choreographer and the artistic director of Batsheva Dance Company. Gaga was originated from the belief in the healing, dynamic, ever-changing power of movement. Gaga classes are predicated on a deep listening to the body and to physical sensations.
Gaga provides a framework for discovering and strengthening the body and adding flexibility, stamina, agility, and skills including coordination and efficiency while stimulating the senses and imagination. The classes offer a workout that investigates form, speed, and effort while traversing additional spectrums such as those between soft and thick textures, delicacy and explosive power, and understatement and exaggeration. Participants awaken numb areas, increase their awareness of habits, and improve their efficiency of movement inside multilayered tasks.
The movement research of Gaga is in a continual process of evolution, and the classes vary and develop accordingly.
Gaga/people classes are open to people ages 16+, regardless of their background in dance or movement. Be aware that you may not get a place because of the fully booked class.
Participants should wear comfortable clothes and be prepared to dance barefoot or in socks. It is advisable to bring a bottle of water and a towel for use after class.
