Check the class schedule for details.
The workshop will start with a 1hr 45min Countertechnique class, followed by a 1hr Practical Tools session, which will introduce different tools each day. After lunch, you will work on Chunky Move Repertoire and create new material, applying the Countertechnique tools. Be prepared to move, sweat, laugh, think, try, err, and challenge yourself in this workshop. The Countertechnique class and Practical Tools session are all about enabling dancers to move bigger, more fluidly and more spatially, while becoming stronger and more flexible. The Repertoire & Creation segment will be aimed at professional dancers, who are able to work quickly, think creatively and perform at a high physical level.
Countertechnique 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.
