EURYTHMY IN PROGRESS is:
Life, energy, creativity, diversity, commonality and a meeting place for young adults of all nations.
A eurythmy framework in which young people from 16 to 23 years of age, from all linguistic and cultural backgrounds, cooperate together, whether familiar or unfamiliar with eurythmy.
The first EURYTHMY IN PROGRESS summer camp, begins 5th-27th of August 2017 at Alanus University Alfter, Germany.
Offering three intensive weeks full of eurythmy, movement, music, artistic collaboration and cultural cohesion.
Young talented eurythmists, who are dedicated and interested in creating choreographies with others will benefit from this project. They will work together with experienced colleagues to gain the opportunity for a professional start in their career. Thus enabling them to lead independently, artistically high-quality projects and initiatives.
We are excited by the interest many cultural centres have shown in our EURYTHMY IN PROGRESS project. We would very much like to develop this further and organise series of lasting eurythmy projects worldwide.
We are always very thankful for any kind of help and contributions
