Eurythmy in English
Master of Arts
The master's program Eurythmy in English is aimed at eurythmists who are looking for an intense eurythmy-artistic exploration and deepening, who want to sharpen their own profile and take next steps with new challenges.
We are pleased to offer a Masters programme in English. The Alanus University Masters Degree is internationally recognised and has already proved to be an award that gives eurythmists higher qualifications, supporting and extending their practice in a range of settings worldwide.
A new course will begin in September, with three pathways: Performance, Education, and Therapy. There will also be an option to attend additional weeks of eurythmy teacher training for those without or with limited prior teaching experience.
Eurythmists will have the opportunity to specialize in one of the following areas, and the assignments and projects will be appropriate to each field:
- Eurythmy as Performing Art
- Eurythmy Therapy
- Eurythmy in Education and as Social Art
The aim of the course is to deepen and expand one’s own work through:
- Eurythmical practice in Master Classes and through individually determined projects
- Defining one’s own questions and developing the research skills to explore them
- Looking at eurythmy in the context of contemporary thought and activity
- Sharing our experiences and discoveries through presentation, demonstration and discussion
The structure of the course is envisaged as a series of four one-week modules per year over a period of 2 years. In between the modules students will be engaged in working with assignments and individual projects in their own context of eurythmy activity. The final Master’s Project will be carried out during the second year and will be relevant to the field of study, for example a performance, therapy case study, or community or school-based research project.
