The Gaga Center is a Birthday Party of the Week

Play Gaga at (where else?) The Gaga Center.  Kids love Gaga, a fast-paced, high-energy sport played in an octagonal pit. Like dodge ball, you get someone out by hitting them with a ball.  Unlike dodge ball, it’s not at all threatening: the goal of the game is to try to touch opponents with a soft foam ball below the knees.

Forget Dodgeball. Gaga seems to be the rage of the grade school set, and I don't mean the singer Gaga. The two owners Marcy Singer and Alissa Schmelkin were awesome to work with and the shots of the kids were a lot of fun to do. I loved how serious they got about it.

“It’s fast. It’s sweaty. And it’s really addictive.” It’s Gaga, and you and your kids will be thrilled that it’s found a home on Manhattan’s Upper East Side. Gaga is a fast paced, high-energy sport played in an octagonal pit. Played with a soft foam ball, this safe game is fun and easy – and not at all traumatic like some other games we know that involve dodging a ball ;-) All children, of all skill levels, get a serious workout while having some serious fun!

Cuckoo for Gaga!

The days have passed when an unpopular fourth-grader would tremble for his life as he stood in a gym, facing an ambush of hard red rubber dodgeballs aimed directly at his face. These days, kids are turning to kinder, gentler fare with a game called gaga. In no way related to the pants-optional pop tart, gaga is a hybrid dodgeball/playground game that has kids of all sizes working up a sweat.
