Dalcroze UK International Spring Course

Dalcroze UK International Spring Course 2024 – a brilliant opportunity to find out all you need to know about Dalcroze Eurhythmics!

The Dalcroze Spring course is the best short course to find out about Dalcroze. Especially if…

  • you are curious about the method and looking for a way to develop a deeper understanding of music, performance, teaching and learning
  • have taken part in a Taster Day or joined an online Zoom Cafe
  • have been involved in Dalcroze in the past and want to reconnect
  • are an experienced Dalcroze practitioner looking to refresh your knowledge, re-connect and be inspired by others working successfully post-Covid

…this is the next step

There are classes for complete beginners as well as experienced practitioners and over three days you will work with some of the best national and international Dalcroze teachers.

More than you think…

Dalcroze is a unique and deep way of learning about and understanding the language of music but it’s much more. It is the only method that considers the relationship between sound and movement. By connecting these we develop sensory integration, learning, communication and social skills.

The contemporary use of Dalcroze in the UK & Ireland – in education and performance, therapy and well-being – is witness to its far-reaching and inclusive nature. Don’t miss this course.

If you’re unable to attend all three days there’s an option to attend for one day on 8th April.

The course begins on 7th April with registration from 4pm followed by a welcome session and drinks reception.

What moves you?  Enquiries into Plastique Animée with Mary Price-O’Connor

These workshops interrogate how we prepare ourselves and others for Plastique Animée and how we teach it. It will take place over three sessions with a Zoom follow up and attendance at all sessions is required. The workshop is reserved for experienced Dalcrozians at Certificate and Licence level and qualified Dalcroze professionals. This is being delivered  by Mary Price O’Connor as part of her practice led dance research MA at the Rambert School of Ballet and Contemporary Dance. This workshop will be interdisciplinary, and participants will be introduced to multimodal elements for reflection and to journal their experience.

Dynamic Reharsal with Karin GreenheadSpring Into Dalcroze UK Course 2022

Dynamic Rehearsal (DR) is a highly effective application of Dalcroze principles to the rehearsal and performance of musical repertoire developed experimentally by Karin while teaching string-players at the Royal Northern College of Music (RNCM) beginning in 1992. Its aim is to enable participants to enter a process of clarifying and refining interpretation and performance and to improve communication skills. DR has been demonstrated in workshops nationally and internationally for many years and has featured in a number of conferences, research articles, Masters dissertations and Doctoral theses. Participants include both performers and listeners. There will be two sessions: 1. An introduction to DR including the preparatory exercises that will be used in 2. Session 2. Performers (soloists or ensembles) are taken through the DR process. Listeners are invited to give feedback on what they notice. Those wishing to perform must bring the score of their pieces and should know the section they want to work on from memory (sufficient to get away from the score). Dress as for rhythmics. Those wishing to perform in session 2 must attend session 1.
