Gaga People February Master class with Maree ReMalia

Gaga People February Master class with Maree ReMalia Vermont Arts 2018
Description:

The Gaga movement language originated from the belief in the healing, dynamic, ever-changing power of movement. Choreographer, Ohad Naharin, developed Gaga over the course of many years and it is now applied in the daily practice of Israel’s Batsheva Dance Company. This 1-hour class 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. This class is for students ages 16+. Open level. No experience required. Observers are not permitted in class.
