Gaga Lovers of Berlin! Your lovely teachers are creating an initiative to keep the Berlin spirit alive and positive through the language of Gaga.
As the Berliner Senate cancelled training for schools, we invite you to experience Gaga classes and connect as a community, in the comfort of your own home or office. As always in Gaga, we will listen to the body before telling it what to do, connect to our range of sensations, and enjoy a workout.
Special thanks to our partners Tanzfabrik Berlin & Dock11 for your support and space.

What is Gaga?
Gaga classes offer a framework for users to connect to their bodies and imaginations, experience physical sensations, improve their flexibility and stamina, exercise their agility and explosive power, and enjoy the pleasure of movement. Gaga's movement language is developed by Ohad Naharin, house choreographer of Batsheva Dance Company, and constantly evolving.

Until today, Gaga classes were only experienced in person, in a shared space. Due to these extenuating circumstances and in the spirit of continuous research, we are now sharing Gaga classes online in a shorter format. Let's together strengthen our engines and connect to far away places, especially as we are currently unable to physically gather together.
How Can You Help?
Many Gaga teachers around the world are independent freelancers, unable to secure work during challenging times, like these. We have minimal employment benefits and little ability to save in advance: most/all of our engagements are canceled due to social distancing restrictions and precautions.
Please give as generously as you can. All donations go directly to Gaga teachers in Berlin to help them through this moment of uncertainty. We understand many of us are experiencing a deep financial hurt due to the situation so pay what you can, if you can!
