Eilit Marom

Teacher Contemporary



Class description
Eilit teaches a ‘Countertechnique’ class, which is a contemporary dance 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.

About Countertechnique
Countertechnique provides tools for body and mind to deal with the deman­ding dance practice of the 21st century. It 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. www.countertechnique.com

About the teacher
Eilit Marom (Haifa, 1986) is a choreographer, visual artist and a teacher based between the Netherlands and Israel. Eilit studied Countertechnique since 2007 and had an internship as Anouk van Dijk’s assistant in 2009. She attended the Countertechnique Teacher Training program in 2012, 2014 and 2022, and has been teaching Countertechnique since 2012 around Europe and Israel in professional education courses, dance centers and companies.
Eilit studied contemporary dance at Dance Workshop in Kibbutz Gaaton, Israel and graduated from ArtEZ Dance Academy in Arnhem, the Netherlands in 2010. Her passion for movement comes from a deep need to express and belong to a community. Her performances are driven by clear actions or interactions that bring performers and public in direct contact with their embodied natural knowledge. She uses tasks like, letting go of something or leaning into each other, as a starting point for creation, and finds links between the physical expression to universal experiences that speak of trust, liberation and sociability. Her work has been presented a.o in Fresh Paint (Tel Aviv), Supercell (AUS), Les Rencontres Choregraphiques (Paris) Gessnerallee (Zurich), and Korzo (the Hague). As a performer Eilit danced with choreographers such as Simone Truong, Keren Rosenberg, Jerome Bel, Amos Ben-Tal, Jack Gallagher, and Kalpana Raghuraman. www.eilitmarom.com
