Jürg will train dance artists and teachers in the instruction of Universal Design in dance and how it can be used in different sorts of situations. Universal design means that the type of dance is created for everyone.
Jürg believes that people with disabilities, no matter what kind, should learn and teach alongside everyone else in the same places and in the same way.
Jürg learned at Candoco, a company like Indepen-dance based in London that works with dancers with disabilities and without disabilities. He created and developed this training while he was researching and working at the University of Washington. Recently he has worked on a project called Dance Unstuck and he’ll use bring some of this learnin tothe training. Dance Unstuck used Universal Design, (or dance made for everyone) with ballet. He’ll use some of the movements in ballet trying new ways of working with ballet to encourage people to push their range of movement and find new possibilities in dance.
“It is in this way that disability and disabled students become a part of the full spectrum of diversity in our dance studios, our universities and our societies, rather than being isolated as an ‘issue’ or group to be taught outside the ‘regular’ curriculum.” Jürg Koch
