Erez Zohar, Certified Gaga Teacher and dancer of the Batsheva Ensemble in Tel Aviv (Tel Aviv, Israel)

A gaga/people class for teachers, musicians and guesting staff where the teacher guides 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 classes offer 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

Contemporary seminar: Workshop about music and dance in collaboration

Heidi Vierthaler, Choreographer and guest teacher of contemporary dance and the founder of the Stream-Flow Method

In the music and dance collaboration workshop we will explore music as a conversation with movement. How much space do you allow in the musical composition to give freedom to playing with timings and rhythms? When do we allow both elements to speak together and when do we just listen. How can we play with phrasings and timings of movement, to keep the viewer interested and surprised.
