Class info

“Countertechnique empowered my dancing and gave my body more volume in the space. I could let go of my own judgment and rediscover my flexibility, strength and joy of movement. The method allows each person to share their unique artistry, be receptive and present in every moment on stage. Countertechnique promotes the dancer to be an active partner of his/hers own body, giving space for individual growth, developing a researchers’ mind and bringing the focus on qualities of an action. As an artist, I found these are very useful skills to have in the independent field. Practicing Countertechnique’s way of thinking I enjoy the process of moving, I am reminded by the fact that there is nothing to get but something to do. It brings me closer to my inner curiosity where I can discover and connect. “
