Welcome to the 5th International Conference of
Dalcroze Studies

‘Dalcroze practice in diverse cultures, communities and contexts’ 

Friday 22 - Saturday 23 October 2021, online


The aim of ICDS5 is to present the best of current research and practice within Dalcroze Studies and related fields. ICDS is a biennial, global, transdisciplinary forum, open to viewpoints from education, the arts and humanities, and the social, natural, health and life sciences. We welcome practitioners, students and established scholars alike.


This year our theme is Dalcroze practice in diverse cultures, contexts, and communities. It will allow us to discuss how and where Dalcroze is practiced, and by whom, with a special focus on the relationships between people, practice, and place. The conference will be relevant to those working in music, education, dance, somatic practices, theatre, and therapy, as well as other fields.

“The conference - organized with skill and care - was superb, intellectually, musically, and in other ways, truly a delight. I very much appreciate being part of it.”
