We are all moved by music. We may even feel the impulse to get up and dance! Even in a concert hall, we feel that some part of us is dancing to the melody, rhythms, and harmonies. Language also moves us, and poetry in particular exploits these subtle latent powers in speech, such as intonation, rhythms, even the sounds themselves. Though our visceral responses may not be conscious, speech and music inspire a corresponding movement in us, as do bird song and raindrops on the window. Eurythmy, then, is an art that lifts these barely perceptible soul movements and gestures into visibility. Through a language of gesture, poetry is moved and music danced in a revelation of the inner soul movement we experience in artistic speech and music. And this artistic eurythmy is complemented by therapeutic eurythmy, a healing art, and educational eurythmy for the healthy development of children.
