in collaboration with the Jaques-Dalcroze Society of Japan!
‘Dalcroze practice in diverse cultures, contexts, and communities’
22-26 March 2021
Kunitachi College of Music, Tokyo, Japan
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.
