About Gaga

Gaga is a movement language for gaining knowledge and self-awareness through your body. 

Gaga is based in the healing, dynamic, ever-changing power of movement.

Gaga increases flexibility, stamina, and agility while lightening the senses and imagination. 

Gaga raises awareness of physical weaknesses and awakens numb areas.

Gaga is great physical training for professional dancers and general public alike. Gaga is good for all ages and body types.  

 In each class, participants are guided through simple movement exercises where they can discover new ease and freedom in their bodies as they move through the space.

 

ABOUT JAMES

In 2016, James lived in Tel Aviv Israel where he trained to become a certified GAGA teacher with founder Ohad Naharin and the Batsheva Dance Company. This Summer, James is traveling across Canada to teach this unique and new movement training system with workshops in Regina Sask, Courtenay BC, Vancouver BC  and Montréal Qc. James is also in the process of creating his first solo, ‘MELT  (a prefix for a prayer)‘ premiering in September 2017 at the Festival Quartiers Danses in Montréal.

MMP RESIDENCY on SALTSPRING

Date: 
2014

"...the point of the work (Speaking in Ligeti) is to use dance to make the music not only accessible in human terms, but to help it emerge as downright beautiful. The audience was on the edge of their seats. I don't know when we have last had such a standing ovation for "new music", never mind that blending it with contemporary dance is not exactly commonplace. Ponderous the work ain't - tender and lyrical in parts, downright funny in others, intensely emotional where it needs to be, and endlessly surprising - there is not a moment when our attention isn't absolutely engaged.
