Parents new to Steiner education – and even those not so new! – often ask, ‘What is Eurthmy?’ One way to find the answer is to ask a eurythmist! We are privileged to have Fynn Stirm as our Eurythmy teacher here in York. Fynn has organised several events for June which we hope will prove interesting, stimulating and captivating, as well as offering an insight into Eurythmy as an art form.
We hope you will take advantage of this opportunity to experience eurythmy in theory and practise.
In 1912, 101 years ago Rudolf Steiner was given the opportunity to create eurythmy. It had taken shape in him over many years and when eventually unwrapped and handed over he immediately placed it into the canon of the 9 muses there to grow alongside poetry, music, sculpture, dance etc. He said: this is the new one. It truly comes towards us all from the future and will keep growing and growing.
I’ve worked with eurythmy for 30 years, 20 at this school and it’s again time to open doors and windows for all of you to take a closer look. Here are the opportunities:
Saturday, June 22, 3 pm – 5 pm “The three gifts of the North Wind” a fairy tale performed by the West Midlands Eurythmy Group
£12 for the whole family (£10 concessions), £5 for individuals.
Tuesday, June 25 8 pm “My take on eurythmy” presentations & talk. Practical insights into my ongoing work with adults and background reasoning
I hope to be seeing you there in good numbers.
