This fascinating first-hand account from a celebrated eurythmist reveals the challenges faced by the early eurythmy students. Available for the first time in English.

When Marie and Rudolf Steiner developed the art of eurythmy in the early twentieth century, their aim was to awaken the musical element within the human form, in a spiritual way. In this unique form of movement, both music and the spoken word are made visible through dance and gestures.

Drawing on her first-hand experience of learning from Marie and Rudolf Steiner, Elena Zuccoli describes the development of eurythmy and gives a personal account of the challenges that faced the early students as they sought to master this new discipline.

Elena Zuccoli (1901-96) was a celebrated eurythmist and eurythmy teacher from Milan, Italy, who studied with Marie and Rudolf Steiner. In 1922 she began her training in speech and tone eurythmy at the Eurythmy School in Stuttgart, Germany which was inaugurated by Marie Steiner. She then taught eurythmy at the school in Dornach, Switzerland, for a decade until 1934. Elena continued to teach and perform across Europe until shortly before her death. Dorothea Mier was director of Eurythmy Spring Valley, USA, from 1980 to 2005, following many years as a member of the Goetheanum stage group under the direction of Marie Savitch. She is currently active teaching workshops in the US and abroad.
