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.
