Eurythmy is taught daily, other subjects in a weekly rhythm or in blocks.
Initially, the student is closely guided while discovering the basic principles of eurythmy. Gradually, as confidence and performance skills develop, the individual’s creative possibilities unfold, and a greater independence is assumed. Student progress is evaluated through continuous assessment and a review with the tutors each term.
At the end of each term the students take part in a public stage presentation of the term’s work.
...THE TIMETABLE ...
The academic year is divided into three terms from September to Christmas, from January to Easter and from Easter until July.
The timetable is not always identical, but usually in the first year classes are held mornings or afternoons only. In the second year there will usually be additional classes and practice sessions resulting in two longer days a week. In the third year there will be more and longer days and in the fourth year there will probably be classes on most mornings and afternoons. Lessons and practice sessions are time-tabled, and rooms with pianos are available on a regular basis for individuals to practise outside college hours. In addition to their classes, the students take part in special events and activities like courses with guest teachers, teaching observation and practice, and they are welcome to join classes on the Eurythmy Summer School. Occasionally the students organise trips to other eurythmy schools or countries e.g. to attend special Eurythmy Performances or courses or to take part in Eurythmy Conferences.
