Teacher training

Students train to become Dalcroze practitioners and teachers in three stages. They work towards exams created by the Dalcroze Eurhythmics International Examination Board (DEIEB). The course lasts three years with an award at the end of each year (Year 1 – Foundation, Year 2 – Intermediate, Year 3 – Professional Certificate). The three years do not have to be consecutive. After receiving an award students can come back at a later date to complete their training. The Professional Certificate award enables the holder to call themselves a Dalcroze Eurhythmics teacher and they are able to teach children and adult beginners. Each Teacher Training course has a Director of Studies. The Director of Studies for Dalcroze UK is Dr Karin Greenhead.

Teacher training in eight intensive weekends: East Croydon, London from autumn 2022

Dalcroze UK also offers training via eight intensive weekends, which take place in Croydon, South of London. This has been the regular centre for teacher training in the UK for many years. It is led by the Director of Studies, Karin Greenhead who is supported by Jacqueline Vann, both of whom hold the Diplômé Supérieur. Kaye frequently teaches on this course.

In 2020 – 2021, due to Covid-19, there were no Foundation or Intermediate students but five students studied for the Professional Certificate online until September 2021 when they were taught again in-person. They took their exams in October 2021. Congratulations to them all for coping with the training in such a difficult period!

A Foundation course is planned for autumn 2022 so please contact Sandi Smith at admin@dalcroze.org.uk if you wish to train via this model.
