This intensive is a movement research series inspired by the Gaga movement philosophy of Israeli choreographer Ohad Naharin. We begin with an 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.

The second hour of the intensive offers an intimate and deep exploration of the movement language. We will learn movement phrases to experience the inhabitance and delicacy of form while generating choreographic compositions. This intensive 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.
