These workshops are a repertoire & technique series, inspired by the Gaga movement philosophy of Israeli choreographer Ohad Naharin. We will begin with a one-hour Shaga class, as we learn to approach movement as a dynamic, healing, and ever-changing power, using evocative ideas and imagery in a safe, non-judgmental environment. Class begins slowly and builds in intensity to continuous motion, providing enjoyable exercise for both body and soul, set to an amazing soundtrack!
The second hour of the workshop offers an intimate and deeper exploration of the movement language through the creative process and choreography. We will develop movement phrases to experience the inhabitance and delicacy of form, while generating choreographic compositions. This 10 week series will conclude with an informal sharing. This workshop is for individuals who wish to open themselves to movement in new ways. Dancers, yogis, and movers of all kinds and abilities are invited to participate. No prior experience necessary!
