At the end of last year, I sent out Data Check Forms to all Dalcroze UK Members, asking by email for confirmation that we have your correct details. In most cases we did, but in some, we didn’t, so thank you to everyone for responding.
If you know of anyone who would like a paper copy of this newsletter, or who you think might like to re-join post pandemic, please let me know on email@example.com
As an organisation, Dalcroze UK is also a Member itself; we are corporate members of the ISM, the European Piano Teachers Association, of the European String Teachers Association, the Music Teachers Association, the British Kodaly Association and the Sport and Recreation Alliance.
You may not be familiar with this last one, but you will certainly have seen some of their work in the media, perhaps a report on Equality and Diversity, or some new safety guidance for a particular sport. They are the voice of the sports and recreation sector to Government, the media and policy makers bringing research, advice, support and guidance to its members.
Over the last few years, the Movement and Dance Division, of which we are Members, has been conducting a huge piece of research, the first ever in the UK, on the “Social Value of Movement and Dance”. It has been an epic undertaking, of which the Division and the SRA are extremely proud, so much so, that it is going to be officially launched to MPs, policy makers and the national press at the House of Commons on 28th June. Watch out for reports in the media. Meanwhile, you can view the report now on their website https://www.sportandrecreation.org.uk/policy/research-publications/social-value-of-movement-and-dance
