The Dalcroze Society of America welcomes you to its 2018 National Conference on Improvisation: The Musical Mind Embodied, which will take place at California State University/Dominguez Hills, in Carson, CA this winter, on January 6-7, 2018.

For information about submitting a proposal for the Conference, see the Call for Proposals on the DSA website; the deadline is midnight (EST) June 21.

Dalcroze Education is a multi-modal, integrated pedagogical and aesthetic system developed by Emile Jaques-Dalcroze. Through exercises and games that involve rhythmic action and interaction, responsive physical movement, and vocal and instrumental improvisation, qualified practitioners use this system to help participants unite mind and body, perform at higher levels, and achieve greater wholeness. The Dalcroze Approach "in and through" music empowers participants to make vital connections on both the subjective and the interpersonal levels, through music, movement, improvisation, and discovery.

Every other year, Dalcroze colleagues, practitioners, teachers, clinicians, therapists, artists, and students—from the newly initiated to seasoned professionals—gather together to renew our passion for teaching, learning, communicating, interacting, and actualizing ourselves "in and through" music. We welcome the opportunity to greet old friends and meet new friends. If you share our love of these pursuits, welcome: you've come home.
