ShaLeigh Dance Works offers SHAGA at Living Arts Collective


Saturday August 11th 4-6pm

Living Arts Collective

410 W Geer St. Durham, North Carolina 27701

Shaga is inspired by the movement language of Gaga, developed by Ohad Naharin. Durham-based Shaleigh Comerford, who trained with Ohad, has created an accessible, empowering and fun practice for anyone interested in liberating their body & their mind.

In this 2 hour workshop we begin with an hour Shaga class, as we learn to approach movement as a dynamic, healing, and ever-changing power, using evocative ideas and imagery in a safe, non-judgmental environment. Class begins slowly and builds in intensity to continuous motion, providing enjoyable exercise for both body and soul. The second half of the class offers a deep exploration of the movement language with sequences that allow us to actively explore our habits, expand our range and discover the endless possibilities of healing ways of moving in a welcoming, accepting atmosphere.

This workshop is for individuals who wish to open themselves to movement in new ways. Dancers, yogis, and movers of all kinds and abilities are invited to participate. No prior experience necessary.

Participants are encouraged to wear comfortable clothing and to move barefoot or in socks.
