Playful and mischievous, KAMUYOT is a dance experience that will excite your inner child and capture the imagination of the youngest to the eldest audience member. Over 45 minutes with no clear boundaries, connections are weaved between the performers and the audience, formulating a language that seems like it has always been there.

As part of Fall For Dance North’s presentation of KAMUYOT,  we are excited to welcome certified Gaga instructor, Kyle Scheurich from New York between Sep 27-29 to host a variety of exciting opportunities for our audience to learn about and engage more deeply with the Gaga movement language.


Kyle will be moderating post-show Q&A with Charlotte Ballet Artistic Director Alejandro Cerrudo and company dancers immediately following the 6:00 PM performance of KAMUYOT on Wednesday Sep 27 at TMU Theatre and the 8:00 PM performance on Thursday Sep 28 at Holy Blossom Temple.

taught by Kyle Scheurich

Thursday Sep 28, from 6:00-7:00 PM, at TMU Theatre (43 Gerard Street East). 
Open to participants of all abilities, ages 16+
No dance experience or registration required.
First come first serve.

Gaga/people classes offer a framework for participants to connect to their bodies and imaginations, experience physical sensations, improve their flexibility and stamina, exercise their agility and explosive power, and enjoy the pleasure of movement in a welcoming, accepting atmosphere. Throughout the class, participants are guided by a series of evocative instructions deployed to increase awareness of and further amplify sensation. Rather than turning from one prompt to another, information is layered, building into a multisensory, physically challenging experience. 

Gaga/people classes are open to people ages 16+, regardless of their background in dance or movement. Participants should wear comfortable clothes and be prepared to dance barefoot or in socks. It is advisable to bring a bottle of water and a towel for use after class.

Open to dancers and advanced dance students, ages 16+
No registration required.
Limited capacity, first come first serve.

Gaga/dancers deepens dancers’ awareness of physical sensations, expands their palette of available movement options, enhances their ability to modulate their energy and engage their explosive power, and enriches their movement quality with a wide range of textures. The classes are built on the same principles as Gaga/people classes but also employ the specific vocabulary and skills that are part and parcel of a dancer’s knowledge. The layering of familiar skills with Gaga tasks presents dancers with fresh challenges, and throughout the class, teachers prompt the dancers to visit more unfamiliar places and ways of moving as well, unlocking the endlessness of possibilities. Dancers are guided to connect their effort to pleasure and to discover the virtue of silliness.



Kyle Scheurich was born in 1992 in New York. In 2010 he graduated from Fiorello H. LaGuardia High School for Music & Art and the Performing Arts. During his time at LaGuardia High School he also studied at Manhattan Youth Ballet under the direction of Francois Perron. He graduated from The Juilliard School and joined Batsheva – the young Ensemble in 2014. Kyle joined Batsheva Dance Company in 2016. Currently Kyle teaches Gaga and performs with P.OR.K, under the vision of Marlene Monteiro Freitas.



During his tenure as artistic director of Batsheva Dance Company, Ohad Naharin channeled his lifelong curiosity about movement into a concerted, dynamic research that took form as Gaga. Weekly classes with the troupe’s dancers in the 1990s served as a significant laboratory, and after a member of Batsheva’s wardrobe staff approached Naharin in 1998, he embarked on a parallel research process with the company’s office workers, friends, and family. Classes were first made available to the general public in 2001, and in 2002, at the request of Batsheva’s dancers, Naharin’s movement language became the main daily training for the company. Naharin coined the name Gaga in 2003, and he continues to research and develop Gaga daily. Classes are offered to the public in Israel and around the world in two main tracks: Gaga/people and Gaga/dancers.
