PART OF MOVE YOUR MIND FESTIVAL
Welcome to a Move Your Mind "Afterburner"! If you have not had enough dancing during the festival, then you have one last chance to get your feet moved about maybe also your mind in this "bonus event". We offer one more "gaga class" Saturday from 11 a.m. to 12 p.m. noon.
Join the dance class with Gaga teacher Kari Vig Petersen and feel the art of dance on your own body.
Gaga/people classes offer a framework for users to connect to their bodies and imaginations, experience physical sensations, improve their flexibility and stamina, exercise their agility and explosive power, and enjoy the pleasure of movement in a welcoming, accepting atmosphere.
Gaga is the movement language developed by Ohad Naharin throughout many years, parallel to his work as a choreographer and artistic director (1990-2018) of Batsheva Dance Company in Israel.
The dance class is run by certified Gaga teacher Kari Vig Petersen. While many instructions are imbued with rich imagery, the research of Gaga is fundamentally physical, insisting on a specific process of embodiment. Inside this shared research, the improvisational nature of the exploration enables each participant’s deeply personal connection with Gaga.
