“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


Professional Development for Dance Artists and Teachers with Jürg Koch

Jürg Koch introduces dance training informed by Universal Design of Instruction, a framework which promotes access for a greater diversity of people. Jürg unpacks key aspects of UD and its application in various dance settings. This is aimed at dance artists and teachers who seek to apply inclusive practice to their work.

Jürg's approach is a result of his experience with Candoco Dance Company and is based on his research and experience developed in the Dance Program at the University of Washington. The workshop will also include current material and findings from the GDance initiative Dance Unstuck, applying Universal Design of Instruction to ballet training. Instead of a disability specific approach or working with ‘adapting’ movements for or by disabled dancers, this approach allows everyone in the class to work with shared principles and processes allowing them to recognise and push their individual movement ranges and possibilities.





Jürg Koch

Born in Switzerland Jürg has been working internationally as a performer, choreographer and

dance educator for the past seventeen years. He trained dance in Amsterdam and London

gaining an MA at the London Contemporary Dance School.

Working with Candoco integrating disabled and non-disabled performers and dancing in

contemporary repertory including works by Bill T Jones, Javier de Frutos and Fin Walker informs

Jürg’s artistic and pedagogic outlook. In January 2004 he joined the faculty in the Dance

Program at the University of Washington. As an educator Jürg focuses on contemporary dance

technique and composition. He has a specialised interest in Integrated Dance and creating

access to course content for a diversity of students. He was appointed Assistant Professor in

2008 and promoted to Associate Professor in 2014. He now lives in Bern, Switzerland and works

as a freelance dance artist.
