Weekend Special: Gaga

Gaga is the movement language developed by Ohad Naharin, the Artistic Director of Batsheva Dance Company. It is a new way of gaining knowledge and self-awareness through your body and provides a framework for discovering and strengthening your body, adding flexibility, stamina, and agility while lightening to the senses and imagination. Teachers guide the participants using a series of evocative instructions that build 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. The work allows for an experience of freedom and pleasure of movement in a simple way, in a pleasant space, in comfortable clothes, accompanied by music, each person with himself and others.

Paul Vickers grew up outside of Chicago, Illinois and received his B.A. in Dance with a minor in Business Administration from Loyola Marymount University in 2012 under the Presidential Scholarship. He danced with Gallim Dance from 2015-2017 and Batsheva – the Young Ensemble from 2017-2018, performing works by Ohad Naharin and Roy Assaf. He has also worked with and performed for LEVYdance, MADBOOTS DANCE, Sidra Bell, Korhan Basaran, ChrisMastersDance, and BARE Dance Company. Paul is a certified Gaga people/dancers instructor.
