The 4th Annual Masters at Chapman is presented through the generous support of the Consulate General of Israel, Los Angeles. Themed "Israeli Exposure," Chapman dance students will engage with a variety of Israeli artists and their work in choreography, story-telling, and film on April 12 and 15, 2021.



International dance artist Bret Easterling will give a Gaga master class, followed by live Q&A.

Bret received his BFA from The Juilliard School in 2010. He was a formative member of Gallim Dance in New York City before joining Ohad Naharin’s Batsheva Dance Company in Tel Aviv where he worked for seven years. Now based in Los Angeles, Bret is on faculty at USC’s Glorya Kaufman School of Dance, Westside Dance Project, and the Artistic Director of BEMOVING. He is a certified Gaga teacher who directs the Gaga Intensives in Los Angeles and New York, and curated the first-ever Gaga Program at The School at Jacob’s Pillow. He stages Naharin’s repertory at collegiate BFA programs and professional dance companies around the world. Bret has created many works of his own, receiving the Hector Zaraspe Prize for Choreography in 2010, and recognized as a Choreographic Fellow at the inaugural Ann & Weston Hicks Choreography Fellowship at Jacob’s Pillow in 2018.
