Maryland CPD Credits: 2

Get inspired. Enrich your skills. Discover new strategies for your teaching. Using techniques of Dalcroze Eurhythmics, a system of study developed in Switzerland in the early 1900s, MusiKinesis delves into the nexus of the music-dance connection, providing practical ideas for dancers and musicians alike.

  • It’s about opening the ear to hearing elements of dance in music.
  • It’s about opening the eye to seeing elements of music in dance.
  • It’s about music in space and sound — and it’s about time!

Dancers – Don’t even think of your standard “Music for Dance” course. Take a week to:

  • Develop personal musicality and change your approach to dance performance – from the barre to the stage.
  • Learn pedagogical techniques for teaching dance students of all ages and levels, improving their sense of music.
  • Discover new choreographic ideas for integrating elements of music in sound and in physical form.
  • Add to your repertory of teaching ideas, favorite music and personal practices.

Musicians – Take off your shoes and move into a new dimension of music. Take this class to:

  • Perceive and perform music with new depth and insights.
  • Teach more effectively using ear, mind and body in ways your students will enjoy.
  • Approach theory, improvisation and composition from a new perspective.
  • Learn new exercises, games and strategies for developing musicianship.
