About the event
Gaga/people classes offer a framework for users to connect to their bodies and imaginations, experience physical sensations, improve their flexibility and stamina, exercise their agility and explosive power, and enjoy the pleasure of movement in a welcoming, accepting atmosphere.
Throughout the class, participants are guided by a series of evocative instructions deployed to increase awareness of and further amplify sensation. Rather than turning from one prompt to another, information is layered, building into a multisensory, physically challenging experience. While many instructions are imbued with rich imagery, the research of Gaga is fundamentally physical, insisting on a specific process of embodiment. Inside this shared research, the improvisational nature of the exploration enables each participant’s deeply personal connection with Gaga.
Everybody aged 16+ is welcome. No prior dance experience necessary. We move in comfortable clothes, barefeet or with socks.
Dance Party (45m)
The Dance Party is an extension of "the last song" in a Gaga/people class. Participants dance together in low-light to a mix of juicy, groovy, and savage tunes, creating our own safe dance club. A search for, a journey of, pleasure. Participants are also invited to add songs that move them to a Spotify playlist before class, or to request songs in the moment.
