Join Danielle Agami (Artistic Director) and Ate9 company members for special Master Classes inspired by Gaga, Ohad Naharin’s movement language. Gaga is a practice of research and discovery that brings new possibilities and healing to the body through constant and mindful movement. Using imagery to guide students through improvisational tasks, Danielle encourages participants to experience a wide range of sensations from within the body. Class works to foster strength, flexibility, and sensitivity throughout the body and mind. Come get groovy, heal your body, and push your physical limits. Classes are open to dancers and all types of movers alike – new movers, voices, and faces enhance the experience in the studio and bring inspiration. Everyone is encouraged to join!
