We welcome you to join Anoushka Jago for a short series of Gaga/ people classes
Gaga/people classes are open to people ages 16+, regardless of their background in dance or movement.
No previous dance experience is needed.
Gaga/people classes last for one hour and are taught by dancers who have worked closely with Ohad Naharin.
Teachers guide the participants using a series of evocative instructions that build one on top of the other.
Rather than copying a particular movement, each participant in the class actively explores these instructions, discovering how they can interpret the information and perform the task at hand.
Gaga/people classes offer a creative framework for participants to connect to their bodies and imaginations, increase their physical awareness, improve their flexibility and stamina, and experience the pleasure of movement in a welcoming, accepting atmosphere.
