Gaga/People Master Class with Amy Morrow
Saturday, August 3; 1:30 – 3:30pm
Cost: $15 Drop in; or use a Keshet Dance Class package
This Master Class lead by Amy Morrow is open to dance professionals and people.
The layering of familiar movements with Gaga tasks presents dancers with fresh challenges, and throughout the class, teachers prompt the dancers to visit more unfamiliar places and ways of moving as well. Gaga deepens dancers’ awareness of physical sensations, expands their palette of available movement options, enhances their ability to modulate their energy and engage their explosive power, and enriches their movement quality with a wide range of textures.
