When the Company is in rehearsal, the Countertechnique classes are tailored to facilitate the needs of Chunky Move’s Company members, but are also open to all regular professional class attendees. The class can help dancers focus on and explore the many elements that are operating and influencing the body and mind when preparing for rehearsal and performance.
A Countertechnique class consists of recurring, simple exercises that lead into fluid movement phrases. Information about how to work with these exercises is given in a cumulative fashion, so the more you attend, the greater your understanding of the technique will become. The classes can be taken at any level, however, once the basic exercises and information is understood, teachers are able to give more in depth, personalised feedback.
