GAGA Masterclass with Rebecca Hytting from L-E-V!

For all you dancers out there – a one time opportunity! A GAGA masterclass with Rebecca Hytting, certified GAGA instructor and dancer with visiting dance company L-E-V! Seriously, this is a class you do not want to miss because GAGA classes can only be offered by certified instructors, of which we have none here in Vancouver!  Thursday November 13, 10-11:30 am at the Dance Centre. $10.

While pre-registration is not required it is STRONGLY recommended!

And if you are looking at the screen with a blank look on your face because you really do not know what GAGA is – never fear! Here is some info on GAGA:

Gaga is a movement language invented by Israeli choreographer Ohad Naharin of Batsheva Dance Company. 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 pleasures in a simple way, in a pleasant space, in comfortable clothes, accompanied by music, each person with himself and others.“We become more aware of our form. We connect to the sense of the endlessness of possibilities. We explore multi-dimensional movement; we enjoy the burning sensation in our muscles, we are ready to snap, we are aware of our explosive power and sometimes we use it. We change our movement habits by finding new ones. We go beyond our familiar limits. We can be calm and alert at once.” – Ohad Naharin See a video of Ohad Naharin speaking about GAGA.
