For more information:

Gaga is the movement language developed by Ohad Naharin/ Batsheva Dance Company in Tel Aviv, Israel. The class is a guided movement experience of images, ideas, directions, and prompts. We will float, stretch our bodies, experience physical climaxes, challenge our limits, become aware of habits and change them, and take pleasure moving and dancing in a welcoming studio.

James Graham is originally from Columbus, Ohio, USA, and is currently based in San Francisco. In 2007, he went to Israel to study Gaga, made possible by the Kathryn Karipides Scholarship in Modern Dance, and has returned many times since then. He was chosen by Ohad Naharin to be a certified Gaga teacher and to take part in his pilot training program of international dancers/ teachers. In 2010, Graham received an M.F.A. in Dance from The Ohio State University, focusing on performance, choreography, and video. He graduated from UC Berkeley in 2005 with a B.A. in Theatre, Dance, and Performance Studies. He has recently worked with Tino Sehgal, Joe Goode, Heather Baer, Lisa Wymore, Lizz Roman, FACT/SF, Bebe Miller, Nik Haffner, and Amy Raymond. His own choreographic work, James Graham Dance Theatre, has recently been presented at the National Queer Arts Festival, Kunst-Stoff Arts, Too Much! Festival, Movement Research at Judson Church, Joe Goode Annex, and in the Golden Gate Park National A.I.D.S. Memorial Grove. He is thrilled to be sharing this language.
