Eurythmy is an artistic movement discipline developed by Rudolf Steiner, the founder of the Waldorf movement. Defined as ‘visible sound’, the alphabet appears in specific sound gestures in Eurythmy, as do the tones and intervals of music. Group choreography is drawn from forms found in nature, such as spirals, stars and figure eights.
In older grades, complicated geometric forms are pursued in work with larger groups. Children develop the ability to move with an entire group in increasingly complex forms. This promotes greater spatial and social awareness, flexibility, and an inner calmness.
