A Short Introduction to the Art of Movement
A concise but informative guide to the three main strands of eurythmy: performance, education and therapy, this new edition has been revised and updated, and includes new color photographs of performance and educational eurythmy.
Rudolf Steiner initiated a new art of movement, which can be characterized as speech and music made visible. This concise but informative guide to eurythmy includes a brief survey of dance, from its origin in the ancient mysteries to its contemporary forms, placing Steiner’s ideas in their historical context. It then goes on to explore the three main strands of eurythmy: as stage performance, in education, and in therapy, giving insightful examples of each.
This new edition replaces the out-of-print Eurythmy: Rhythm, Dance and Soul.
