Eurythmy Course for Adults Being Offered

Eurythmy is an art of movement born out of the inner being of man. It is speech and music made visible through the whole human being: body, soul, and spirit.

All are invited to five evenings of a beginning, deepening artistic working, where we will explore and, through movement, “speak” poetry and “sing” music.

Whether you have done it before or this is your first time, anyone interested is welcome to join.
If you have gymnastic shoes, please bring them to each class.

Course dates: October 11, 18, and 25; November 8 and 15
