In the last few years, there has been an ongoing discussion of the changing character of teaching eurythmy in Steiner Waldorf Schools. This has happened in various forms and groups, particularly in the Eurythmy Association, and in the Eurythmy Teachers’ Network – a group of eurythmy teachers who meet regularly on Zoom to discuss the situation in their schools and to share experiences and exercises with one another.
This year the Eurythmy Teachers’ Network are holding pedagogical weekend workshops once a term for pedagogical eurythmists, with regular invitations for eurythmy students. Come, join our group if you are interested in pedagogical eurythmy and take part in our meetings and workshops!
