Join us for “Experience Music through Movement Games: An Introduction to Dalcroze Eurhythmics” on Tuesday, Feb. 27 in the Center for the Arts (Building 1P), Room 220 from 2:30pm to 4:00pm.

RSVP online.

Music moves us. So, to learn music through physical movement makes sense. In fact, it makes many senses: listening, of course, and seeing, too. But also, kinesthesia. When you sense music through your own body movements, you “proprioceive” it—you feel it inwardly, as a muscular sensation. In turn, by exploring the various ways music makes you feel, you discover ways to express musical sensations through your movements. You hear vigorously rhythmic music—a march, for example—and you step in time with the music, vigorously enacting the beat. You are learning through movement games that connect your actions, reactions, and interactions to the growing musical understanding you and others are forging. It’s delightful. 

This event is designed for faculty and staff. Come dressed comfortably, ready to kick off your shoes and move through the Dance Studio (where wearing shoes is not allowed).  

Presenter: William R. Bauer, PhD; Diploma, Advanced Studies in Dalcroze Eurhythmics; Music Program Coordinator, Department of Performing and Creative Arts (CSI)
