This November, the Pennsylvania Eurythmy Ensemble will be on tour in the northeast region traveling to New York, Massachusetts, New Jersey, and Pennsylvania. The tour kicks off right here at Kimberton Waldorf School on November 15 with three programs offered to all age groups: for K through 3rd Grades (with the 12th Grade accompanying their 1st Grade buddies), there is the charming fairytale from Japan: The Magic Tea Kettle; for 4th though 7th Grades, the entertaining Cornish story: Duffy and the Devil; and for 8th through 11th/12th Grades, a selection of pieces from the evening program.
While these programs are performed within the school day and only a few of you may be able to attend, there is an opportunity afforded you all later on in the tour when the Ensemble will give a public performance at Rose Hall at Camphill Kimberton Hills on Saturday, November 23 at 7:30 pm. Quite a few of the pieces shown here the students will have seen on the 15th. We encourage you to take this opportunity to catch a glimpse of what this art form is all about. It is after all a very key component of our Waldorf curriculum; an art form inspired and created by the creator and founder of Waldorf Education: Rudolf Steiner.
Looking forward to seeing you there, and please feel free to bring a friend!
Raymonde van der Stok-Fried (Eurythmy teacher, Grades 8-12)
“When a person expresses what lives in his soul through language and singing, then he is engaged with his entire being. To a certain extent, he has the tendency to move with his entire body…. The movements of Eurythmy are derived from the entire human organism, just as lawfully as is speech or song….Eurythmy has little to do with the arbitrary as do speech and song. It makes just as little sense to say that random gestures are preferable in eurythmy as that chance notes or chance sounds are better than the sounds that arise out of the lawful structure of speech and music. Eurythmy is not to be confused with the dance. One can move eurythmy to that which is musical at the same time as it is sounding. This is not dancing to the music; it is singing visibly.”
From Rudolf Steiner on the Art of Eurythmy, 1923

Movement in Meditation Meditation in Movement
with Jaimen McMillan
Rudolf Steiner, the initiator of Anthroposophy, presented six steps as a foundation for a path of self-exploration and development. Although these meditative suggestions are widely known, many have difficulty in practicing them. Besides the challenge of finding quiet amidst the distractions of everyday life, it may also be that these practices are being done incompletely. Applying exercises from the discipline of Spacial Dynamics®, we will learn to create and perceive the often overlooked subtle movement indications and progression of these six steps. Whether Steiner’s subsidiary exercises are new to you or a life-time practice, this seminar promises to bring your meditative life into movement.
Session begins Friday evening 7:00-9:00 pm, and continues Saturday 9:00 am - 5:00 pm.
Session fee is $150.
