Developed by Anouk van Dijk, 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 stretches, coordinates and strengthens the body, making the dancer sweat, build stamina and really move. It enables big and fluid movement, while making one strong and flexible. The consistent use of the directions and counter directions in all movements is key to the technique; both the awareness and application of this principle is trained throughout the Countertechnique® class. Dancers are introduced step-by-step to the various tools – making sure, however, that the priority always lies with experiencing and enjoying the difference in moving, rather than first having to understand the tools intellectually. Dancers are encouraged to be pro-active in discovering connections and solutions.

The workshop will be organized in two different section : it will start with the Countertechnique® warm-up consisting on a recurring set of exercises and in the last part of the workshop we will investigate on a deeper level the tools and principles through improvisation and guided exploration with a particular attention to the ability of shifting attention while dancing.
