Monica Dale is one of the leading authors and publishers of Dalcroze Pedagogy and Methodology.  As a professional dancer and musician, she brings her unique approach to Dalcroze education to Rocky Mountains in a workshop designed for both musicians and dancers interested in the relationship between music and movement.  Monica will offer ideas from her rich collection of lesson plans so that professionals and amateurs alike will take home a wealth of ideas on how to inform their own musicianship using the body and gesture.

What Is Dalcroze Education?

Dalcroze Education is a unique, exciting, and powerful way of knowing music through the body.  The Dalcroze approach explores musical concepts through social and interactive methods that invite students to trust their ideas and develop their own intuitions.  In a typical Dalcroze class, the instructor will combine the elements above using rhythm games, songs, gesture, and movement as the key teaching media so that the joy of music is experienced and understood.  As a precursor to or in tandem with private music lessons, Dalcroze Education will create a platform for accelerated and deep learning in all musicians.
