Gaga/people 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 in a welcoming, accepting atmosphere.
Throughout the class, participants are guided by a series of evocative instructions deployed to increase awareness of and further amplify sensation. Rather than turning from one prompt to another, information is layered, building into a multisensory, physically challenging experience. While many instructions are imbued with rich imagery, the research of Gaga is fundamentally physical, insisting on a specific process of embodiment. Inside this shared research, the improvisational nature of the exploration enables each participant’s deeply personal connection with Gaga.

From the pier to the sand to the sea, this playful, physically experimental class will transform in the movement across surfaces, textures, bodies, and beach zones. Opening up the body, celebrating the day, having fun with each other, this class will groove with moments of solo exploration, group experience, sonic vibrations, and sensorial play. We’ll find warm our bodies and commune on the pier, launch off and get lost in the sand, cool down and flow with the waves. Come, let’s move together… get sweaty, sandy and salty!
