Gaga & Toolbox
Join us for a 3-day Gaga experience for dancers & people in Dallas. No previous dance background needed!
"While Gaga is a serious new way of training the body, it is also about connecting to pleasure and. . . realizing that there’s nothing wrong with being silly."
— Gia Kourlas, The New York Times
7pm | Gaga Session
8-9pm | Toolbox Session
Saturday & Sunday, 6/16-6/17
1-2 pm | Gaga Session
2-5pm | Toolbox Session
You'll be guided using a series of evocative instructions that build on each other. Rather than copying a movement, you'll actively explore these instructions, discovering how you interpret the information and perform the task at hand. It's a creative framework for you to connect to with your body and imagination, increase physical awareness, improve flexibility and stamina, and experience the pleasure of movement in a welcoming, accepting atmosphere.
Led by Amy Diane Morrow, who graduated from the inaugural teacher training program directed by Ohad Naharin.
Open to people ages 16+, regardless of their background in dance or movement. No previous dance experience is needed. All you need is curiosity!
Extra Early Bird: $95 (thru April 15)
Early Bird: $125 (thru May 15)
Advance: $150 (May 16 on)

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.
Wear comfortable clothes. Be ready to dance barefoot or in socks. Bring a bottle of water and a towel.
Presented in partnership with Dallas Movement Lab, Arts Mission Oak Cliff, Dallas Feldenkrais & The Theorists.
