Céline HyunJin Barreau

Céline (she/her) is an independent dance artist based between London and Zurich, working as a teacher, choreographer, performer, and movement director. She trained professionally in Switzerland until she moved to the US, earning her degree in Neuroscience & Behaviour. Upon her return to Europe, Celine’s passion shifted to improvisation methods which is where she found Gaga, a strong part of her daily practice, and became a certified teacher in September 2021.

Class info
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. Come and groove! Photo headshot by Anais Southiphong
