EURYTHMY

Eurythmy is a physical movement program that introduces students to the laws underlying speech and music. Created by Rudolf Steiner in 1912, eurythmy brings speech rhythms and musical rhythms into the experience of the whole body.

Speech is made up of vowels and consonants, nouns, verbs, adjectives, rules of grammar, thoughts and feelings, and “moods of soul.” In eurythmy, these are expressed through movements. The idea is to understand the principles behind speech, and to enliven the experience we have of speech.
