GAGA SPECIAL EVENT!

ilDance is initiating an afterwork gathering specially and specifically arranged for principles and high school teachers who are working in Gothenburg. This event will help one experience and learn more about Gaga Movement language. 

The event will take place on the 21st of March 2017 between 17:30 - 19:00

ilDance is constructing a pilot project which will introduce high school students in Gothenburg to Gaga movement language through participation in classes. The pilot project is the first step towards structuring a program which is the first of it’s kind. This program will include the sensational Gaga movement language as ongoing activity as part of the high school curriculum. 

We aspire to introduce Gaga into the education system in high schools as it would offer a rare form of physical activity, cognitive stimulant, body-brain connection enhancement, social equality and acceptance experience, liberation of creativity as well as a community feeling within the participating groups. 

No previous experience or knowledge about dance is necessary prior to participation in a Gaga class.

Gaga is a movement language developed by Ohad Naharin, the artistic director and choreographer of Batsheva Dance Company.

The language of Gaga originated from the belief in the healing, dynamic, ever-changing power of movement. “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
