Open to all but especially relevant for Waldorf teachers and parents
Eurythmy is essential in order for Waldorf Education to fully serve the child. But what is eurythmy? What does it actually do for the child? How does it fit into the Waldorf curriculum, and what is its contribution and impact?
In this highly experiential workshop, you will deepen your understanding of why this art form is so essential to the Waldorf pedagogy, and experience for yourself elements of the eurythmy curriculum from kindergarten across the grades.
Through discussion and activity you will:
– Discover what eurythmy reveals about human development
– Work your way through the development of the child by means of exercises appropriate to each developmental phase
– See how the Waldorf curriculum comes to life through movement and gesture
– Learn about the interplay between eurythmy and academic experiences
– Acquire the language and understanding to talk about eurythmy to Waldorf parents in a valuable way
– Work, play, laugh, and have fun!
Eurythmy and the Growing Child is designed as both a stand-alone as well as a means of enhancing your experience in another Sunbridge Summer Series 2018 offering.
