11am-1pm Gaga/dancers + toolbox
Gaga/dancers class is open to professional dancers or advanced dance students ages 16+.
This class will employ the specific vocabulary and skills that are part and parcel of a dancer’s knowledge.  The layering of familiar movements with Gaga tasks presents dancers with fresh challenges, and throughout the class, the teacher will prompt dancers to visit more unfamiliar places and ways of moving as well.  Gaga/dancers 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.
The toolbox session is a time when class participants use what they learned inside a composition created by the teacher.  This is a special session to enjoy the endless possibilities of using Gaga inside choreography and allow each dancer to find their own voice through the language.

1pm-2pm Gaga/people
Gaga/people is open to ages 16+ regardless of their background in dance or movement.  No previous dance experience is needed.
Gaga/people is taught by dancers who have worked closely with Ohad Naharin.  The teacher will guide the participants using a series of evocative instructions that build one on top of the other.  Rather than copying a particular movement, each participant in the class actively explores these instructions, discovering how he or she can interpret the information and perform the task at hand.  Gaga/people offers a creative framework for participants to connect to their bodies and imaginations, increase their physical awareness, improve their flexibility and stamina, and experience the pleasure of movement in a welcoming, accepting atmosphere.

Joe Alegado has danced around the world with New York City companies such as Ballet Hispanico, Alvin Ailey II, and the Jose Limon Dance Company. He has been living in Europe for almost three decades where his work has been on display throughout major institutions, dance festivals, and companies. His teaching and choreography have taken him to many parts of the world in Central and South America, the Caribbean, Asia, Europe as well as North America. His classes are based on the principle of creating an atmosphere within the body experience which will allow the dancer to have an opportunity to move openly, honestly and expressively. An important characteristic of class is the use of arm and hand gestures coordinated with teh shifting weight of the skeletal structure, specifically the pelvis. This particular relationship creates a rich and organic movement vocabulary resulting in a class constructed on movement themes which slowly evolve and organically lead to the choreography at the end of class.
