Why Do Our Schools need Eurythmy? An Introduction to Eurythmy and Its Healing Influence in Schools

By Leonore Russell
One of the first questions parents ask when they come to learn about a Waldorf school for their child is about the movement art taught in most Waldorf schools: eurythmy. What is it? Why does my child have to do this? After many years of working as a eurythmy teacher and in the administration of a Waldorf schools, I find myself still answering these questions.

He worked with first a young girl and then an ever growing group of interested artists to develop this new art of movement. Continue reading
