“Eurythmy: Making Movement Human,” the DVD from which this is excerpted may be purchased at www.millennialchild.com. Eurythmy, a new art of movement developed by Rudolf Steiner, is a valuable educational tool. Today’s children need to MOVE, and eurythmy guides their movement to both great works of music and poetry. In this excerpt from a longer DVD, Sam Russell’s camerawork captures the beauty and joy of eurythmy classes in three Waldorf schools: Green Meadow Waldorf School, the Waldorf School of Princeton, and Kimberton Waldorf School. We see Maria ver Eecke teaching first and fifth graders (with commentary by Wendy Kelly), Tertia Gale teaching eighth graders, and Raymonde Fried teaching eleventh graders.
