Attend The International Conference of Dalcroze Studies 4: ICDS 4 in Katowice, Poland, at the Karol Szymanowski Academy of Music. The grant is for airfare.

The ICDS, to be held summer 2019, is particularly exciting because of the emphasis on research, which brings practitioners in the sciences, medicine, and philosophy, together with musicians, dancers, music educators, etc. Currently, there is much interest in the effects of music and movement on the brain and brain development. Research papers, workshops and performances are all learning experiences and tremendously enjoyable, when shared with such a diverse community. This year, the conference theme is “The Listening Body In Action” in music, dance, somatic practices, theatre and therapy, with a special focus on the relationships between listening, music/sound and movement.
