Classes technique avec Charles Slender-White


Countertechnique, developed by Dutch choreographer Anouk van Dijk, is a 21st century contemporary dance technique that trains dancers’ bodies and brains for today’s diverse and demanding field. Countertechnique coordinates, stretches, and strengthens the body, making the dancer sweat, build stamina, and really move. Class starts with a recurring set of exercises allowing the dancers to investigate the principles of Countertechnique in detail. The second half of class consists of changing components that work towards luscious movement combinations. By continuously and sequentially directing and counter directing parts of the body through space, Countertechnique allows the moving dancer to work with an ever-changing dynamic balance, which reduces the pressure on the overall body structure. The consistent use of the counter direction in all movements is key to the technique both the awareness and application of this principle is trained throughout the class. In the end, dancers use less energy, lose their fear of taking risks, and gain speed in changing direction.
