Eurythmy Association of Great Britain and Ireland
Welcome to the website of the Eurythmy Association of Great Britain and Ireland. The Association exists as a voluntary body to further the work of eurythmy and eurythmists throughout the British Isles. Revealed and further developed by the Austrian scientist, educator and philosopher Dr Rudolf Steiner (1861-1925), eurythmy came into being as a new art of movement in the early decades of the 20th Century. Through the instrument of the human body, eurythmy strives to reveal the fundamental creative principles underlying speech and music.
Eurythmy began as a new performing art of movement but soon after its inception it found further application in education and therapy. More recently an additional application has been developed in the social realm working with the dynamics of personal relationships and team building within organisations. Further information on eurythmy can be found here.
The Eurythmy Association of Great Britain and Ireland was re-founded at a conference in Botton Village in July 2006 with a mandate to support eurythmy generally and the work of eurythmists in all spheres in which they are active. The Association acknowledges itself to be an integral part of the working of the Anthroposophical Societies in both Great Britain and Ireland.
Through its first origins as a performing art, the Association's members also recognise the connection of eurythmy to the Section for the Performing Arts at the Goetheanum, Dornach, Switzerland.
