Company Class with Gallim Dance
Approximately 1 hour, 30 minutes
Cato Arts Building Room 333

In a series of immersive improvisational experiments students build road maps to self-discovery. This class is inspired by Gallim’s collective discoveries in physical therapy, traditional movement techniques, Gaga, Gyrotonics, and Miller’s choreographic works. Each class develops students’ technical growth through a sensitive and imaginative conversation between the muscular, nervous, skeletal, and cognitive systems.

Gallim’s W H A L E is part of the Festival’s 2017 program.

Gaga People Master Class with Hillel Kogan
Approximately 1 hour
Cato Arts Building Room 317

Gaga/people classes are open to people ages 16+, regardless of their background in dance or movement. No previous dance experience is needed.

Gaga/people classes last for one hour and are taught by dancers who have worked closely with Ohad Naharin. Teachers 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 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.

Participants should wear comfortable clothes and be prepared to dance barefoot or in socks. It is advisable to bring a bottle of water and a towel for use after class. Anyone who purchases a ticket to the class should be prepared to participate. Observing is not permitted.

Hillel Kogan’s We Love Arabs is part of the Festival’s 2017 program.
