First Grade is a time of building good movement habits and learning how to move together in a group. Group goals include focus and participation, taking turns, moving with control and rhythm, building strength, and joyful expression. The students work with enthusiasm to master challenging locomotion patterns and use a variety of props to develop dexterity.
Eurythmy routines are choreographed to stories and include large solemn gestures as well as small distinctive ones. Fast, rhythmical exercises are also incorporated to develop agility and coordination. The students practice synchronization, as movements done in unison enhances and heightens the effort of the individual.
