Elita Cannata

Born in Italy, Elita Cannata is currently based in Amsterdam. She has studied Countertechnique since 2005 and performed for anoukvandijk dc in 2007 and 2008. She attended her first Countertechnique Teacher Training (CTTT) program in 2014 and, with the support of the Amsterdams Fonds voor de Kunst, returned to the CTTT in 2018 and progressed to the level Senior Teacher.

Elita Cannata graduated with a Bachelor of Dance in 2007 at Rotterdam Dance Academy / Codarts in the Netherlands and in 2011 got her MA in Theories of Performing Arts at the Università degli Studi in Bologna. During and after her graduation she danced for José Navas, Megumi Nakamura, anoukvandijk dc, Cathy Sharp Ensemble, Compagnia Tpo, Tan Temel, Samuele Cardini, Itzik Galili and Fabrizio Favale among others. Next to her dance and teaching career, she also works for several dance companies in the Netherlands as a Rehearsal Director.

"Dance allows me to explore myself while being connected with others: it is not just about moving but about people, about sharing an experience. For me dance is a perfect moment of connection with what is happening inside and outside myself. It is a joyful exploration, a discovery in time and space of a momentum impossible to grasp, therefore endlessly challenging.

Countertechnique is helping me to continue the research of that perfect moment, anyway impossible to reach, and to happily comprehend the responsibilities of my personal dance process through a practical training as such. It is a precious tool that helps me to look for solutions rather than to be focused on problems, and it also reminds me that I am never alone while moving, allowing me to be alert and free. Through Countertechnique I feel I can be present in the moment when all is perfectly connected, and this is thank to the choices I make… with fun and joy! I am so glad to continue now this process in teaching, sharing this essential encounter of my life with the dancers I will meet."
