Warm up with Gaga/dancers and then use tools from class inside composition so that dancers have the opportunity to find their artistic voice inside the language.
Gaga/dancers classes are open to professional dancers or advanced dance students ages 16+. These classes last for an hour and fifteen minutes and are taught by dancers how have worked closely with Ohad Naharin. Gaga/dancers classes are built on the same principles as Gaga/people classes but also employ the specific vocabulary and skills that are part and parcel of a dancer’s knowledge. The layering of familiar movements with Gaga tasks presents dancers with fresh challenges, and throughout the class, teachers prompt the dancers to visit more unfamiliar places and ways of moving as well. Gaga/dancers deepens dancers’ awareness of physical sensations, expands their palette of available movement options, enhances their ability to modulate their energy and engage their explosive power, and enriches their movement quality with a wide range of textures.
In the Composition Session following the Gaga/dancers class, dancers use what they leaned inside a composition created by the teacher. This is a special session to enjoy the endless possibilities of using Gaga inside choreography and allow each dancer to find their own voice through the language.
