The 5th International Conference of Dalcroze Studies (ICDS5), in 2021, will be a prestigious and colourful event, enhancing your institution or organisation's profile, and bringing cultural and economic benefits to your city and region.

We invite applications from anyone who wishes to host.

The ICDS Conference Charter is a living document, designed to preserve what we continually learn from experience and ensure future conferences are fully supported to run smoothly. Every two years, the Scientific Committee revises the charter, which sets out the fundamental principles of the conference organisation and includes detailed templates for hosts to use. 

The charter is user-friendly and an important part of ICDS’s future. If you would like a copy, please email
