Springboard and Countertechnique are proud to co-present the first One Body, One Career Countertechnique Intensive (OBOC) in Montréal, which will bring together participants from all over the world to delve into Anouk van Dijk’s Countertechnique method, to learn invaluable skills for their career and to build connections around the globe. The 2019 OBOC will take place in Montreal from 1 – 12 July 2019. 

Working for ten full days with Countertechnique Founder and former Chunky Move Artistic Director Anouk van Dijk, Senior Teacher Niharika Senapati and Alexander Technique expert Tom Koch, the OBOC offers a wealth of information to both first time and returning participants.

The OBOC Intensive is for professional dancers and advanced dance students interested in pursuing a long, healthy and successful career in dance. First-time participants will gain a detailed introduction to the distinct elements and methodology that form Countertechnique while returning participants will have the opportunity to deepen and expand their understanding. Through physical practice, theory, discourse and creative workshops, participants will gain a set of practical tools that they will be able to draw from and apply in their daily dance practice and through performance seasons.

The 2019 Montréal OBOC Intensive will offer daily Countertechnique classes and Practical Tools sessions. Countertechnique Founder Anouk van Dijk will share her love for space, improvisation and the creative process. Senior Countertechnique Teacher Niharika Senapati will offer insights in Anouk van Dijk’s repertory for Chunky Move and strategies for performance practice, and Tom Koch will introduce his specific approach of Alexander Technique for dancers in plenary and individual sessions. The intensive will conclude with a shared presentation of the various workshops.

Each OBOC operates in an intimate setting and only offers spots up to 55 participants. All previous editions have drawn a mix of participants from around the world including North America, Asia, Europe, South-America, the Middle East, Russia, Australia and New Zealand. The OBOC is not only the ultimate opportunity to immerse yourself in Countertechnique, but also an amazing event to meet international dancers, teachers and choreographers, who are interested in pursuing long careers and who love dancing!
