Westminster Choir College

Princeton, NJ

The Dalcroze Society of America welcomes you to its 2016 National Conference and Pre-Conference Symposium on Flow in Performance. We are pleased to announce that online registration is now open for this event, which will take place at Westminster Choir College, Rider University, in Princeton, NJ the week of June 20 – 24 this summer.

The event features a Pre-Conference Symposium, which takes place at WCC on June 20 and 21, and the 2016 National Conference, which takes place at the same location on June 22, 23, and 24. Come hear scholars working in a range of disciplines share their research into flow and how it relates to human performance, and then experience the ways Dalcroze Eurhythmics teachers guide participants to actualize their potential for flow by learning "in and through" music and movement.

What is Dalcroze? Based on the artistic and pedagogical principles of Emile Jaques-Dalcroze, the Dalcroze approach teaches an understanding of music's fundamental concepts, expressive meanings, and deep connections to other arts and activities. Performers, teachers, dancers, actors, children, and senior citizens can all benefit from this approach which incorporates rhythmic movement, aural training and improvisation.

"Dalcroze is particularly exciting to me because it allows [the] vital creative aspects of music making to be honed and explored while enhancing the rigor of the musicianship training we provide." Dana Zenobi

"...I was awakened to the realization that I could once again hear more clearly, feel more deeply, and see my way to a greater understanding of the multiple manners in which 'music is life.'" Patricia Shehan Campbell
