Joy returns to Nashville to teach Countertechnique.

COUNTERTECHNIQUE:  a movement system designed by Anouk Van Dijk that thoroughly prepares the body for rehearsal and performance, enabling dancers to move bigger, more fluidly and more spatially, while becoming stronger and more flexible. Participating artists will have the opportunity to experience daily Countertechnique sessions followed by creative process research with Joy.
