Free Gaga/people Class with certified teacher Wies Van Houplines on Saturday, March 4 at 3pm

Studio 110 – Nicholas Music Center

Following the screening of “Mr. Gaga: A True Story of Love and Dance,” take a free Gaga/people class with dancer/teacher Wies Van Houplines, graduate of the Royal Conservatory Antwerp in Belgium and certifiedGaga/people teacher. Participation in class is first-come, first-served, with a maximum of 50 participants. Please RSVP as 848-932-1367.

Arrive early to ensure entry.

Gaga/people classes are open to people ages 16+, regardless of their background in dance or movement. No previous dance experience is needed.

Gaga/people classes last for one hour and are taught by certified teachers and dancers who have worked closely with choreographer Ohad Naharin. Teachers guide the participants using a series of evocative instructions that build one on top of the other. Rather than copying a particular movement, each participant in the class actively explores these instructions, discovering how he or she can interpret the information and perform the task at hand. Gaga/people classes offer a creative framework for participants to connect to their bodies and imaginations, increase their physical awareness, improve their flexibility and stamina, and experience the pleasure of movement in a welcoming, accepting atmosphere.

Participants should wear comfortable clothes and be prepared to dance barefoot or in socks. It is advisable to bring a bottle of water and a towel for use after class.

Please note this is a Gaga/people class, not a Gaga/dancers class, which employs more specific vocabulary and skills.



Student government would like to open up the opportunity to receive funding for summer programs or anything that will help you in your artistic career. You can be awarded a maximum of $500 per person. Please send a request detailing your project, your estimated amount, and a brief statement on why this would benefit you to mgstudentgov@gmail.com
