Countertechnique provides tools for body and mind to deal with the demanding dance practice of the 21st century. It is a movement system to help the dancer think about the dancing body, focusing on the process of incorporating information into action. Within a clear structure of exercises, the Countertechnique class thoroughly prepares the body for rehearsal and performance, enabling dancers to move bigger, more fluidly and more spatially, while becoming stronger and more flexible.
In a 1 hr 15 min format, the Countertechnique Online classes are tailored to small spaces. The classes offer familiar elements of the Countertechnique studio class and aim to create more space in body and mind. Due to the experimental format the classes will also form a platform for further research and development. Where possible, in the initial stage of the program launch, we will offer the opportunity to reflect and provide feedback immediately after the class. As a consequence of the exploratory nature of the activities, format, content and timing of the classes might change over time.
Countertechnique was developed by Anouk van Dijk throughout her twenty-five year career as a dancer, choreographer and teacher. Over the last fifteen years, the knowledge and experience she gained – in constant dialogue with her dancers – was gradually transformed into a detailed theoretical system and a teaching method, which now together form the Countertechnique system.
