Eurythmy means “beautiful or harmonious movement.” It is a unique experience to the Waldorf curriculum. Developed early in the last century by Rudolf Steiner, eurythmy is neither dance nor mime, but uses the body as an instrument in space. The air is the medium in which eurythmists make forms and gestures much as a sculptor uses wood or stone. Attempting to sing and speak through movement, eurythmists “sound” in space, bringing the life and color of music and poetry to vivid expression. Eurythmy strives to make the invisible dance of creative sound a visual experience. Eurythmy helps to develop concentration, self-discipline, and a sense of beauty. Eurythmy lessons follow the themes of the curriculum, exploring rhyme, meter, story, and geometric forms.
