Gaga is a "movement language" developed by Ohad Naharin, famed choreographer and former artistic director of Israel's prestigious Batsheva Dance Company (he remains the house choreographer). The dance is designed to be a means of better connecting and understanding one's body, raising a self-awareness that also strengthens muscles and increases flexibility, stamina, and agility through creative expression. Gaga dance classes are offered all over the world, and in Israel, some are led by Naharin himself. Classes take place daily in various studios around Tel Aviv, and they are open to locals and tourists alike. There is no level of experience required, just an open mind. Due to the numerous participants from abroad, some classes are completely in English, while others can accommodate non-English speakers.
