Eurythmy is an artistic form of dance devised as a natural, physical expression of speech. Gestures represent vowels & consonants, as well as the more complex qualities of feeling, thinking and willing. It is seen to be of great benefit to children, helping them become more alert and at ease with themselves as well as more graceful and coordinated. Consequently it may be used as a therapy where indicated. Eurythmy requires both individual and group coordination, and this awareness and respect for others’ space benefits children’s social development. Theory aside, the children greatly enjoy this form of dance!
