MORE INFORMATION ABOUT WORKSHOPS


WORKSHOP 'DANCING WITH DELIGHT'
Step into the flow with Teacher Countertechnique, Joy Davis

In this open level two-day workshop, Teacher Countertechnique Joy Davis shares her love for dancing. With her vibrant personality Joy will guide you through Countertechnique class exercises and improvisations, and you will explore ways to soften and widen your body into the endless space around you. Along the way, you will collect tools that help cultivate a greater ease in the moment of training, and bring new possibilities for how to use attention effectively, and find delight in moving. 

Joy has been a certified Teacher Countertechnique since 2012 and teaches workshops in the US and Canada. She is Associate Professor of Dance at the Boston Conservatory at Berklee. Based between Charlotte and Boston Joy creates, produces and tours collaborative dance-theater work with joyproject, The Davis Sisters, and her partner Eric Mullis.

WORKSHOP 'TOOLBOX THEORY & PRACTICE'
Find clarity and organisation with Nina Wollny

Join Nina Wollny as she explains what the Countertechnique Toolbox consists of, and how to implement tools in dancing life. On Day 1, Nina will give an overview of the Toolbox. On Day 2, we will get to work, and explore what a tool is, how to choose one and apply it effectively. This workshop is most useful for people who have already taken some Countertechnique classes, and who want to go deeper. 

Nina Wollny has been working with Countertechnique Founder Anouk van Dijk for 20 years as her closest collaborator, and has been on the Faculty of the One Body One Career Intensive (OBOC) since its inception in 2006, and the Countertechnique Teacher Training (CTTT) since 2008.

Maximum participants: 30. Participants are accepted on a first come first serve basis.

WORKSHOP ‘REFLECT TO ACT' 
Unpack specific issues with Anouk van Dijk

This interactive coaching workshop departs from questions, submitted beforehand by participants. Digging into old habits and new territories, personal requests will be taking into collective exploration. We will look at how a pro-active approach to taking a Countertechnique class can inform your dancing in general, and help you find solutions. This workshop moves from reflection, to physical action, to applying Countertechnique tools to other dance styles. Some previous experience with Countertechnique is recommended. 

Anouk van Dijk is the Founding Artistic Director of Countertechnique, and former Artistic Director of Chunky Move, one of Australia’s leading dance companies. Anouk currently works as a free-lance choreographer, director and teacher worldwide. Van Dijk has trained all 35 Countertechnique teachers to date.

Maximum participants: 30. Participants are accepted on a first come first serve basis.

A positive force in the dance world, and deeply committed to increasing equity, diversity, and inclusion, Lillian Barbeito is the visionary behind HAVEN Global Sanctuary for Dance. She is a certified Countertechnique Teacher (since 2008), Founding Director of BODYTRAFFIC, and Senior Lecturer at Loyola Marymount University.

MORE INFORMATION ABOUT CLASSES
 

BASIC FLOW CLASSES (75 min, for everyone)

This class is for everyone who loves to move and is curious about Countertechnique. In this basic movement class, you will receive hands-on information to make moving lighter and more fun. No prior experience with Countertechnique or dance training is required, this class is accessible to everyone. We will depart from simple improvisations and movement exercises, as we wake up the senses and gently warm up in a flow of movement. By creating more space inside our bodies, we will unfold our limbs into the space around us. We conclude with a simple dance combo, connecting our energy to music!
