Countertechnique Sunday Workshops with Joy Davis
Countertechnique provides tools for the body and mind to deal with a demanding dance practice of the 21st century. Countertechnique is a movement system to help the dancer think about the dancing body, focusing on the process of incorporating information into action. By continuously and sequentially directing and counter directing parts of the body through space, Countertechnique allows the moving dancer to work with awareness within an ever changing dynamic balance. In Countertechnique classes, dancers are introduced step-by-step to the various tools. Countertechnique was developed by Anouk van Dijk throughout her twenty-five year career as a dancer, choreographer and teacher.
Joy Davis has studied the Countertechnique with Anouk van Dijk and Nina Wollny since 2005. In 2012, Joy was certified to teach Countertechnique and is one four American instructors teaching classes and workshops all over the United States and beyond.
