Participants: Dancer and Movement Practitioners
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 Ohad Naharin.
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.

Drawing from contemporary dance techniques and elements from Capoeira we will move with flow, weight, spirals and momentum.
The class will begin with yoga and conditioning exercises to prepare the body before focusing on various movements during crossings followed by either a phrase or improvisational tasks.

Lucija creates a dynamic class where we push and expand the boundaries of physical strength, stamina and creativity at once. The class is for contemporary dance artists that wish to grow in endurance, expression and focus.
We will be multitasking and overlapping ideas and sensations.
After articulating and dissecting the body into micro pieces we will get to the place where we feel as one homogenous instrument of power. Warming up absolutely every cell and opening all the senses. When we dissolve our minds and bodies we gain the freedom to and reprogram the system. We build ourselves from scratch. The new constellation of thoughts and movement articulation provides us with choice in movement and an open, reenergised body. The body is ready to learn, relearn, fail and explore set of choreographed phrases that were based on these insights.
It is all about experiencing that first smell of freedom that pushes you into the world and makes you conquer, investigate and let go of your physical boundaries.
Creating the space for yourself where mountains can be moved.
