Counter world is a youth dance project that has already had one very successful production with over 150 students and dance school students on the Sunshine Coast. It is choreographed by LJ Projects artistic director, Melissa Lanham and is performed with the principal dancers from “Vincent” – another LJ Projects production which is having is Australian Premier at the Adelaide Fringe Festival 2016.
Counter world is aimed at high school aged – university students interested or practicing dance, focusing on students developing skills in contemporary dance, dance theatre skills, improvisation, choreography, repertoire, class work, stylized movement, task work and partnering. LJ Projects always focuses on safe dance practices and so all of the work taught keeps these practices at the forefront. Counter world is available as an extensive community engagement program on its own, or as part of the Vincent touring show package. It can also be formatted to a curriculum based assessment.
The next scheduled Counter World is to be in Adelaide, with rehearsals throughout Janurary 2016, to then be performed over 4 shows of Vincent at the Adelaide Fringe Festival 2016 as part of its Australian Premier. Students are invited to be involved, and can download a info package and registration form here. For more information, please contact us via our contact page or the details on the registration form.
