We look forward to welcoming international guest tutor,  Anne-Gabrielle Chatoux, Director of Dalcroze France, to the UK for the first time to complement the team of UK teachers: Karin Greenhead, Bethan Habron-James, Andrew Davidson, Cynthia Wilson and Monica Wilkinson.  Movement classes will be led by Lily Hayward-Smith.

Delegates will experience creative and inspirational sessions in the fundamentals of Dalcroze Eurhythmics – rhythmic movement, aural training, improvisation and plastique animée.

There will also be an opportunity to gain insight into Dalcroze pedagogy through the observation of two children’s classes, taken by Anita Memmott and Rebecca Spencer.

The course will cater for all levels.
