Rudolf Steiner initiated a new art of movement, which can be characterized as “speech and music made visible.” This concise, informative introduction to eurythmy includes a brief survey of movement and dance, from its origin in the ancient mysteries to contemporary forms, placing Steiner's ideas in a historical context.
It goes on to explore the three main strands of eurythmy: stage performance, educational, and therapeutic, offering insightful examples of each.
The book has been revised and updated, and includes black and white photographs of performance and educational eurythmy.
