About this class
By continuously and sequentially directing parts of the body away from each other in space, Countertechnique allows the moving dancer to work with an ever-changing dynamic balance. This dynamic balance reduces the pressure on the overall body structure and can be changed at any given moment.
My capacity as a person and as a dancer and creator has shifted to become one whereby I am empowered and I hope to empower many others around the globe through sharing and exchanging this practise. Each day is a new day and each challenge in class brings many wonderful opportunities that we can share together on the dance floor.
