Dance the Estate/Dartington goes Gaga: a one day dance festival

Dance the Estate/Dartington goes Gaga: a one day dance festival

Dance the Estate/DARTINGTON goes GAGA is a one-day festival 
offering a chance to experience dance through the GAGA approach with two internationally renowned practitioners: a first time for Devon. Inspired by the rich history of experimentation in dance at Dartington Hall this unique event is brought to you by two Dartington College of Art Choreography graduates Minou Tsambika Polleros & Kerstin Möller in partnership with Dartington Arts and Dance in Devon, supported by Arts Council England and Erasmus +. Together we bring an exceptional movement training experience to the South West region. The day combines professional Gaga classes taught by Chisato Ohno and the movement technique Memory In Formation by Eldad Ben Sasson who’s style has been strongly influenced by Gaga dance. The day provides professional development for dance artists and dance students. There will also be an inclusive workshop open to everyone, with or without dance experience.
