Gaga/People

Saturday: 1:00 p.m.-2:00 p.m.

Mark Morris Dance Group Not a NYC Department of Parks and Recreation operated property , 3 Lafayette Ave, Brooklyn

Age:Adult  

Gaga/people explores “gaga”, a movement language developed by Israeli choreographer Ohad Naharin to help dancers and non dancers reconnect to the way they move. Teachers guide the class through a series of evocative instructions that participants actively explore, discovering individual ways to interpret and perform the information through movement. 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. No prior dance experience needed, and this Open Level class is offered on a drop-in basis.
