Gaga/dancers classes are open to professional dancers or advanced dance students ages 16+. These classes last for an hour and fifteen minutes and are taught by dancers who have worked closely with Ohad Naharin. The layering of familiar movements with Gaga tasks presents dancers with fresh challenges, and throughout the class, teachers prompt the dancers to visit more unfamiliar places and ways of moving as well. Gaga deepens dancers’ awareness of physical sensations, expands their palette of available movement options, enhances their ability to modulate their energy and engage their explosive power, and enriches their movement quality with a wide range of textures.
Natalia Iwaniec was born in Poland and is now a freelance dancer and gaga teacher based in Europe. She finished her Master’s in Theater in Cracov and completed her degree in dance at the Dance College in Wroclaw in Poland. She lived in Tel Aviv for two years, exploring the Gaga movement language. During this time, she was part of Yasmeen Godder’s workshop for dancers in Tel Aviv and also trained in Contact Improvisation. Natalia became a qualified teacher of Gaga in August 2012.
