Summer 2017 offers a lot of opportunities to study Countertechnique in the USA. Make sure to join us at one of these exciting events!
Countertechnique Founder Anouk van Dijk herself will visit the United States to teach two workshops, one at Gibney Dance in New York City (June 13-16) and one at BODYTRAFFIC's Summer Program in Los Angeles (June 19-22). This is an unique opportunity to work with the creator of Countertechnique, and Artistic Director of Australian contemporary dance company Chunky Move. The daily schedule will start with a Countertechnique class, followed by a Countertechnique Practical Tools session, and is concluded by a 2 hour workshop combining Chunky Move Repertoire and the creation of new movement material.

From June 15 to July 29, Kira Blazek Ziaii and Joy Davis will teach Countertechnique for six weeks at the American Dance Festival's Six Week School. Having encountered Anouk van Dijk and Countertechnique at ADF in 2005, the circle closes with the two of them returning to the festival to teach Countertechnique themselves.
Joy Davis will also teach a workshop from June 19-23 at Springdance Intensive 2017 in Miami, where she'll focus on Countertechnique classes and improvisational practice to create an environment for movement discovery.
Kelsey Paschich will teach Countertechnique classes from May 28 to June 3 in Austin, as part of the ARCOS Dance Summer Workshop | Professional Training, which offers a range of different classes and workshops.
Rosanna Tavarez will teach Countertechnique classes from July 17-21 in Los Angeles, as part of the Los Angeles Contemporary Dance Company Intensive, and from July 23-27 in Sarasota, as part of the Sarasota Contemporary Dance Summer Intensive.
