Students begin their year in eurythmy with an introduction to body awareness through the senses and movement in the six directions of space. The class progresses to rhythm activities from Africa and performs group dances such as "Tumba alle Tumba,” a piece that calls for individual control in moving with scarves and long wooden rods as well as group cooperation. The curriculum rounds off with numbers using complex body percussion inspired from the South African Gumboot style of dance. Activities to enhance balance, flexibility, and individual awareness serve as warm-up and cool-down exercises in lessons.
