Rhythm, Dance and Soul
Rudolf Steiner's ideas in practice
This book offers a concise introduction to the principles and practice of eurythmy, a new art of movement initiated by Rudolf Steiner.
A historical context is provided by means of a brief survey of dance, from its beginnings in the ancient mysteries to today’s forms of dance. The author explains Steiner’s insight into the hidden laws of movement —which Steiner designated as belonging to the realm of the etheric.
Eurythmy provides a way to make speech and music visible. The author discusses eurythmy and stage performance and its importance in terms of education and therapy.
