Julia Testa is an active, enthusiastic professional performer, movement teacher in London, who teaches her technique “Dissolving” developed during her MFA in Creative Practice at Trinity Laban.
Julia’s movement background roots and varies amongst Contemporary Dance, Capoeira, and Somatic Dance.
Bridget draws on her background in both contemporary and traditional Celtic folk dance to create material that challenges musicality, speed, athleticism and nuance.
The main aim of her class is to create space within the body, mind and spirit to enable freedom of movement and expression.
The class begins with guided improvisation using imagery and dynamics to awaken different possibilities within the body. Then, the class progresses into exploring floor work and footwork elements, using playfulness and repetition to imprint efficiency of movement into the body.
The class will culminate in a choreographic sequence which serves as a celebration of what we have discovered and created throughout the class.

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/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 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.
