Eurythmy West Midlands offers a unique opportunity for Training in Eurythmy
If you are looking for an activity that has both a physical and spiritual dimension, that involves movement, music, poetry, drama, colour, and encompasses education, stage performance and therapy, a training in eurythmy may provide you with the answer to your search.
Eurythmy West Midlands offers two separate programmes which together form the four-year eurythmy course:
Diploma in Eurythmy Education & Eurythmy as a Performing Art (Level 6)
This programmes is Crossfields Institute Self-Regulated Qualifications (SRQs) – for further information, see below.
The art of eurythmy was developed initially with Rudolf Steiner (1861–1925), who worked with movement artists, actors and speakers, painters, teachers, scientists and doctors, gradually to expand this art-form into something which is now practised all over the world.
TRAINING IN EURYTHMY IN STOURBRIDGE
ENROL NOW! New intake starts September 2018
Our courses offer a path of self-discovery and a training of capacities that gives the student a foundation to go on to teach public classes and participate in performing work. The postgraduate level courses enable the student to become a teacher in schools, to take eurythmy as a social and developmental activity into businesses, or to become a therapist in a variety of healthcare settings.
Successful graduates are awarded a Diploma in Eurythmy issued by the Section for Eurythmy, Speech and Music in Dornach, Switzerland. The programmes, Eurythmy Education and Eurythmy as a Performing Art are also certified as Crossfields Institute Self-Regulated Qualifications (SRQs). SRQs are designed, delivered and awarded to the same quality standards as regulated qualifications, but are not regulated by Ofqual. The two programmes together are equivalent to a Bachelors programme in terms of the volume and level of learning.
