Improvisation & Contemporary

Class will begin with a warm-up inspired by Gaga Technique *. It will challenge dancers approach to moment and encourage moments of groove and delicacy. Movement will progresses across the floor and focus on center combinations as well as floor work. (12 years and older) 

* 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 pleasure in a simple way, in a pleasant space, in comfortable clothes, accompanied by music, each person with himself and others.
