Following two sold out intensives at the Monkey House in 2017 and two in 2018, we are delighted to welcome back Natalia Iwaniec for our fifth Gaga weekend intensive!
Gaga is the movement language developed by Ohad Naharin, parallel to his work as a choreographer and the artistic director of Batsheva Dance Company, http://gagapeople.com/english/. Gaga provides a framework for discovering and strengthening the body, adding flexibility, stamina, agility, coordination and efficiency while stimulating the senses and imagination. Gaga classes are predicated on listening to the body and responding to physical sensations.
The intensive is open to all dancers, physical actors, movers and people aware of their physicality that are willing to learn something new or to bring a different flavour to their daily training.
Extra places are available for the Gaga/dancers class only (morning session) at £10. Booking for this can be done by selecting Gaga Sunday Class pass to book your place.
Starts: Saturday, September 7th 2019 at 2:30pm
Bookings close: September 6th 2019
