The invited artists have often danced/ choreographer for some of the most prestigious contemporary dance companies in the world and therefore have some of the most cutting edge forms of training and creative toolkits in the world.
They often offer inspiration to young artists to develop/refine their own forms of trainings and creative making and increase their technique portfolio.

Gaga is a new way of gaining knowledge and self-awareness through your body. Gaga provides a framework for discovering and strengthening your body and adding flexibility, stamina, and agility while lightening the senses and imagination. Gaga raises awareness of physical weaknesses, awakens numb areas, exposes physical fixations, and offers ways for their elimination. The work improves instinctive movement and connects conscious and unconscious movement, and it allows for an experience of freedom and pleasure in a simple way, in a pleasant space, in comfortable clothes, accompanied by music, each person with himself and others. Gaga/dancers classes are open to professional dancers or advanced dance students ages 16+. These classes last for an hour and fifteen minutes and are taught by dancers who have worked closely with
Gaga/dancers classes are built on the same principles as Gaga/people classes but also employ the specific vocabulary and skills that are part and parcel of a dancer’s knowledge. The layering of familiar movements with Gaga tasks presents dancers with fresh challenges, and throughout the class, teachers prompt the dancers to visit more unfamiliar places and ways of moving as well. Gaga/dancers deepens dancers’ awareness of physical sensations, expands their palette of available movement options, enhances their ability to modulate their energy and engage their explosive power, and enriches their movement quality with a wide range of textures.
Every first Sunday of the month.
To date we have run five performance festivals/events, two focussed solely on uk based dance work, three also had international remit. These have all received ACE funding in addition to funding from partner cultural organisations (The Place, Aerowaves, Hayward Gallery, ICI, Czec Center).
The vision of these festivals is always to promote and showcase new work by the most talented new dance artists in UK and Europe.
As part of MMM, we have hosted a series of online encounters with lecturers and clinicians to catalyze conversations around the health and wellbeing of contemporary dance artists in the workplace and throughout their careers. The aim was to question how we operate as a sector and what our relationship with our workforce’s health is.
Unfortunately evidence indicates that professional dancers are a medically under-served occupational group.
Consider this booklet as an awareness toolkit containing information drawn from these online conversations.
