Natalia Vik received her dance education at Copenhagen Contemporary Dance School, Denmark. She is a certified teacher of Gaga (Ohad Naharins movement language) since 2012. The last 10 years she has shared her movement research around Europe, Brazil, Argentina and the US. Bringing movement classes to dance educations, dance companies, festivals and Gaga people classes open for the public. Natalia is also passionate about qigong, tango, painting and nature as a great inspiration for her work


Gaga is the movement language that was developed by the Israeli choreographer Ohad Naharin throughout many years, parallel to his work as a choreographer and the artistic director of Batsheva Dance Company.

Teachers guide the participants using a series of instructions that build one on top of the other. Rather than copying a particular movement, each participant in the class actively explores these instructions with their own interpretation. We welcome movement from the origin of listening to our bodies, and we explore different qualities and work with multi-layer tasking. 

Since the classes have been adapted to best suit the online format, we start the exploration in a more active state then usual, and wish to explore the different exercises for a longer period of time.


With an online format, it is nice to leave the camera on so the teacher is able to see what is happening and to also take inspiration and further action from there on. The most important thing is to have fun, explore the body/instructions and to move to get the circulation going as well. Remember to have enough space to move, and enough light around you.
