About Gaga

Gaga is a movement language developed by Ohad Naharin in Israel to help dancers and non-dancers alike reconnect to the way they move. Gaga is a unique form of dance where emphasis is placed on sensations rather than positions to allow for a more experiential practice. It encourages authenticity as well as joy in movement. The technique emphasizes tension release, harnessing your imagination, finding your own passion for movement, and understanding the body as a source of power and energy. This can help anyone explore their weaknesses and break out of bad habits.
