Countertechnique is a system of movement designed by esteemed Dutch choreographer, Anouk Van Dijk. The technique offers a dynamic dance practice that focuses on directing and counter-directing the body through space so that each participant can develop authentic, sincere and unique movement vocabularies – tools that Van Dijk believes will prepare the dancing body and mind for negotiating demanding dance practices in the 21st century. Scale, risk-taking, fluidity, strength and flexibility are skills this course aims to expand. The class will be builidng on new concepts week to week, therefore, studets are encouraged to register to take this as a twice-a-week class. If only once-a-week is possible, students are encouraged to take the Tuesday class.
