"While Gaga is a serious new way of training the body, it is also about connecting to pleasure and. . . realizing that theres nothing wrong with being silly." Gia Kourlas, The New York Times
You'll be guided using a series of evocative instructions that build on each other. Rather than copying a particular movement, you'll actively explore these instructions, discovering how you interpret the information and perform the task at hand.
Open to people ages 16+, regardless of their background in dance or movement. No previous dance experience is needed. All you need is curiosity!
Gaga 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.
Led by Amy Diane Morrow, one of the first to be trained to teach gaga by its founder, Ohad Naharin.
Wear comfortable clothes. Be ready to dance barefoot or in socks. Bring a bottle of water and a towel.
Gaga is a new way of gaining knowledge and self-awareness through your body. Gaga provides a framework for discovering and strengthening your body and adding flexibility, stamina, and agility while lightening the senses and imagination. Gaga raises awareness of physical weaknesses, awakens numb areas, exposes physical fixations, and offers ways for their elimination. The work improves instinctive movement and connects conscious and unconscious movement, and it allows for an experience of freedom and pleasure in a simple way, in a pleasant space, in comfortable clothes, accompanied by music, each person with himself and others.
