OPEN COMPANY CLASS: COUNTERTECHNIQUE

For our upcoming Open Company Classes, ROSANNA TAVAREZ returns for a 13-week series. TAVAREZ is a former Guest Artist with LACDC and 1 of 2 certified Countertechnique teachers based in Los Angeles.

The Countertechnique class is an intermediate/advanced contemporary technique class. It stretches, coordinates and strengthens the body, making the dancer sweat, build stamina and really move. The class starts with a recurring set of exercises, allowing dancers to investigate the Countertechnique principles in detail. The second half of the class consists of changing components, working towards luscious movement combinations and jumping at the end. The Countertechnique class results in dancers using less energy, losing their fear of taking risks and gaining speed in changing direction.

GAGA/DANCERS with Genna Meroni

GENNA MERONI is a certified Gaga teacher based in Los Angeles and will be teaching a 6-week series of Gaga classes.

Gaga/dancers classes are open to professional dancers or advanced dance students ages 16+. Teachers guide the participants using a series of evocative instructions that build one on top of the other. Rather than copying a particular movement, each participant in the class actively explores these instructions, discovering how he or she can interpret the information and perform the task at hand. The layering of familiar movements with Gaga tasks presents dancers with fresh challenges, and throughout the class, teachers prompt the dancers to visit more unfamiliar places and ways of moving as well.

Gaga/dancers deepens dancers’ awareness of physical sensations, expands their palette of available movement options, enhances their ability to modulate their energy and engage their explosive power, and enriches their movement quality with a wide range of textures. The classes offer a creative framework for participants to connect to their bodies and imaginations, increase their physical awareness, improve their flexibility and stamina, and experience the pleasure of movement in a welcoming, accepting atmosphere.
