Eurythmy Spring Valley is delighted to offer two weeks of pedagogy for professional eurythmists in August 2017. Each course week will provide a different pedagogical focus and content for participants.

Week One will take up eurythmy for the festivals of Michaelmas, the Rites of Spring, the Maypole and others–for students in the middle of childhood, grades three to six. A vigorous and joyful approach will be offered for teaching eurythmy to students as they navigate the tender and formative heart of childhood. Cristina Geck and Laura Radefeld will guide the studies for this week.
Week Two will move into the middle senses in relationship to eurythmy pedagogy for grades six to eight, the higher senses in relationship to teaching eurythmy in the high school, and major and minor in tone eurythmy as a basis for the eurythmy curriculum. Faculty for week two will include Annette Conlon and Dorothea Mier.
Beyond the work on this year’s themes within the eurythmy curriculum and child development, we will also have time to share material with one another and discuss topics of current concern and interest. If participants have a eurythmy solo to share, it would be lovely to make time for sharing artistic work with one another.
On two Wednesdays, August 16 and 23, 2017, we have added an evening course for each Refresher week that will take an active look at presenting eurythmy to Waldorf parents with Laura Radefeld. This stand-alone course, open to eurythmists not enrolled in a Refresher week, will focus on developing lively, interactive workshops for parents that give a direct experience of the support eurythmy offers to the growing child at each stage of development. For those participating in the Refresher Weeks this course is included in the Refresher week tuition.

With the help of the faculty of the school, including Barbara Schneider-Serio and Natasha Moss, they will bring the program to fruition in the winter and spring terms, 2018. Various supplemental courses  will be offered, including lighting, costuming, along with tour organization and finances, to name a few.

Frontier Eurythmy Part-time Training Course
Frontier Eurythmy Part-time Training Course:  Enrolling now for New Class Beginning in October 2017!
First Training Block:
Sunday, October 8 – Saturday, October 21, 2017
We are delighted to announce that a new class is beginning in our Frontier Part-Time Training in October 2017. The Frontier program is ideal for those who want to begin their studies in professional eurythmy, while honoring other existing commitments. Many of our graduates have started their professional training in eurythmy through studying in this program. The program is designed to cover the first-year curriculum of the full-time training over two years, with seven weeks of study in each year, accompanied by a curriculum of independent study between blocks. Unlike the full-time training at Eurythmy Spring Valley, we do not offer a new Frontier class regularly, so if you’ve been thinking about beginning the eurythmy training, this is your best opportunity to enroll in the new class of our part-time training program.
For information on enrollment and the training tuition, please call Eurythmy Spring Valley at 845-352-5020, ext. 113, or email:
