Addo Platform would like to invite the Vancouver Community to our Gaga People classes. Our Gaga People classes will be lead by Canadian Gaga teacher Alvin Collantes .
Gaga/people classes are open to people ages 16+, regardless of their background in dance or movement. No previous dance experience is needed - professional dancers are also welcomed.
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.
