Gaga Weekend Intensive
7th & 8th September
Following a collection of sold out short courses and intensives in 2018 and 2019, we are delighted to welcome back Natalia Iwaniec for another Gaga Weekend Intensive!
Gaga is the movement language developed by Ohad Naharin, parallel to his work as a choreographer and the artistic director of Batsheva Dance Company, http://gagapeople.com/english/. Gaga provides a framework for discovering and strengthening the body, adding flexibility, stamina, agility, coordination and efficiency while stimulating the senses and imagination. Gaga classes are predicated on listening to the body and responding to physical sensations.
The intensive is open to all dancers, physical actors, movers and people aware of their physicality that are willing to learn something new or to bring a different flavour to their daily training.
There are several booking options available. There is the option to attend the entire weekend (Saturday & Sunday), or only one day (Saturday OR Sunday).
Extra places are available for the Gaga/dancers class only (12:00 – 13:15 session) at £10. Booking for this can be done by selecting Gaga Sunday Class pass to book your place.
