Gaga is a movement language which Ohad Naharin developed over the course of many years and which is applied in daily practice and exercises by the Batsheva Dance Company members. The language of Gaga originated from the belief in the healing, dynamic, ever-changing power of movement, and it continues to evolve today.
Gaga is a new way of gaining knowledge and self-awareness through your body. Gaga provides a framework for discovering and strengthening your body and adding flexibility, stamina, and agility while lightening the senses and imagination. Gaga raises awareness of physical weaknesses, awakens numb areas, exposes physical fixations, and offers ways for their elimination. The work improves instinctive movement and connects conscious and unconscious movement, and it allows for an experience of freedom and pleasure in a simple way, in a pleasant space, in comfortable clothes, accompanied by music, each person with themselves and others.
Gaga has two tracks: Gaga/people and Gaga/dancers.

Nicaragua : March 12th to March 18th with Jeanne Mudie
I took a group to this resort a few years ago and had such a great experience. The staff was more like family, making our stay even more special. The food was delicious! For our outings we went zip lining, surfing, we hung out on the beaches and visited the town of San Juan Del Sur. We ended up taking two boat tours, we celebrated the last evening with a sunset sailboat cruise where the cabin crew took special care to keep us fed and our drinks full.
I would love to share this amazing experience again!!!
