Dalcroze Eurhythmics: Moving through the archive is a free one-day symposium to celebrate the founding of the Dalcroze Society, and providing a wonderful opportunity to discover Dalcroze Eurythmics; to see, hear and feel its history up-close, and to learn about current Dalcroze practice.  If you are a student, practitioner, teacher or researcher interested in music, dance, theatre or movement, join a distinguished international team for the day to explore how Dalcroze Eurythmics helps develop deeper musicality and creative expression through whole body movement.  Find potential new ways to enhance and enrich skills, performance and creativity, and discover the wealth of resources held in the Dalcroze UK archive.  Activities include:

  • A Dalcroze practical workshop (join in or just observe)
  • Presentations from international Dalcroze scholars, teachers and students
  • A performance of plastique animée – a movement response to a piece of music or another art form according to Dalcrozian principles
  • A tour of the Archives & Special Collections held by the National Resource Centre for Dance, University of Surrey Library
  • A display from the Dalcroze UK archive
