Shaked Dagan is a Choreographer, dancer, dance teacher, and an artistic entrepreneur based in Germany.

Born in 1986 in Haifa, Israel, she had completed her dance studies in the Reut Middle School of Arts, in the Vizo High School of Arts, followed by The Matte Asher School of The Performing Arts in Kibutz Ga’aton (MASPA). Right after her studies in 2006 she began freelancing as a dancer, working with Israeli choreographers Dana Ruttenberg and Shlomi Bitton, in the Muza Dance Company and in the Batsheva Dance Company ‘Kamuyot’ performance tour, where she also began teaching Gaga.  Since then, alongside working as a dancer for DRDG, the choreographers Ariel Cohen and Ari Rozsenzweig, dancing in Playground Improvised performance group, teaching Gaga internationally, and managing rehearsals for the Halelu Dance Company in Jerusalem, Shaked has been creating her own work –  researching territories of womanhood within personal and cultural context, and exploring the social and political experience of Israeli identity and nomadism.  Her works experiment with different performative mediums and incorporate collaborations with artists of different disciplines. Her freelance and commissioned works were performed in Israel and internationally in dance Festivals (Shades of dance Festival / IL, Tanz In Salon / DE, Between Heaven and Erath / IL.), on international stages, gallery screenings, and site-specific constellations.

Class Description

GIMOR is about developing and articulating our movement range, while being present and aware of our mind. We work on being attentive to our body, revealing its habits, limitations and versatility, and attempting to research new ways of perceiving enriching and articulating our movement. We take the time to notice the effect our thoughts and emotions have on the way we move and vice versa.

GIMOR is based on two main pillars – Gaga movement language and Mindfulness. This guided improvisation journey offers an in-depth examination of the qualities of our movement. We cruise through a wide spectrum of impulses and physical qualities, extremes and exaggerations, and the endless possibilities that lie between them. This research is accompanied by a constant awareness of the mind, emotions and thoughts, through meditation or meditative-through-movement state, which enables a reflection on the body-mind connection, and its effects on the way we move, think and feel.
