Flier for the Gaga benefit for Japan

Have you been thinking about trying Gaga, Ohad Naharin’s movement language?  Are you interested in doing something to help those affected by the earthquake and tsunami in Japan?  Next week you can dance and donate to a good cause at the same time.

On Tuesday, April 5, Ohad Naharin and the members of the Batsheva Dance Company will offer a special Gaga/people class to the general public at the Tel Aviv Port’s Hangar 11.  Tickets to take the class cost 50 NIS, and additional donations will also be welcomed.  All proceeds will be donated to victims of the recent natural disasters in Japan.

Whether you’re already a longtime Gaga enthusiast or have never set foot inside a dance studio, you are welcome to enjoy this one hour class.  The doors will open at 7:30 p.m., and the class itself starts at 8:30 p.m.  Participants are encouraged to leave their bags and personal belongings at home and arrive dressed in comfortable clothing.  Tickets can be ordered in advance by phone at 03-5104037 or online at www.batsheva.co.il.  On the evening of the class, tickets will be sold at Hangar 11; only cash will be accepted at this time.
