Details about GAGA
GAGA/DANCERS classes are open to professional dancers or advanced dance students (ages 16+). These classes are taught by dancers who have worked closely with Ohad Naharin. GAGA/DANCERS classes employ the specific vocabulary and skills that are part and parcel of a dancer’s knowledge.
The class works with the layering of familiar movements with GAGA and present dancers with fresh challenges, and throughout the class teachers prompt the dancers to visit more unfamiliar places. GAGA deepens the dancers awareness of physical sensations and enriches their movement quality with a wide range of textures.
“We are moving without any stop, all together, to ride on ongoing movement that is moving inside our bodies constantly without using mirrors.”
