Gaga classes happening now! (NO relation to Lady Gaga)
Posted August 14th, 2010 - 1:39 am by from New York, United States (Permalink)
I just wanted to share with everyone in NYC that there are Gaga classes now at Peridance being taught by Ron Amit. I have been taking them for the past 2 weeks, and love it.

There are Gaga People classes (non-dancers and dancers), and Gaga Dancers almost everyday through August. I will be leaving for Amsterdam and Israel next Wed. (I will be taking some Gaga while in Israel) but I wanted to make sure all the NYC dancers out there get a chance to experience this wonderful dance form.

Gaga is the technique used by Batsheva Dance Company based in Israel and created by their choreographer/Director Ohad Naharin. Here is a great video explaining and showing some of the elements: http://www.danceinisrael.com/2009/02/ohad-naharin-on-gaga-video/

And check out some of Batsheva's dance on Youtube.

Hope to see you in class!
