Guest artist Joy Davis, visiting from Boston, MA, will offer Canada’s first ever countertechnique intensive for professional dancers. This technique, developed by Chunk Move Artistic Director Anouk Van Dijk, facilitates a supple, yet vigorous, whole body movement system.

Countertechnique is a movement system to help the dancer think about the dancing body, focusing on the process of incorporating information into action. Within a clear structure of exercises, the countertechnique class thoroughly prepares the body for rehearsal and performance, enabling dancers to move bigger, more fluidly and more spatially, while becoming stronger and more flexible.

Joy Davis is a dance maker, performer, and teacher. She received an MFA in Choreography and Performance from Smith College in 2015 and is one of four Countertechnique Teachers in the US since 2012.
