Gaga Master Classes with Ohad Naharin!

Artistic Director of Israel's Bat-Sheva Dance Company, Ohad Naharin, is coming to Peridance in November to teach 2 classes in Gaga Technique.

November 9 & 10, Mon & Tues at 2:30pm

*Online Registration is CLOSED!! Interested, unregistered students may add their names to the Master Class' wait list. Entry into the master classes will be given on a first come, first served basis.

Naharin created Gaga over 20 years ago and it can be used to recognize the body's almost unlimited movement potential; to discover a sense of endless possibilities. Naharin has stated that Gaga is about becoming available:

"we discover our passion to move and connect it to effort, we discover both the animal in us and the power of our imagination. We learn to appreciate understatement and exaggeration, we discover the difference between joy and pleasure and use both to protect ourselves from injuring and hurting our body... We become more aware of people in the room and we realize that we are not in the center of it all. We never look at ourselves in a mirror, there are no mirrors."
