Welcome Karen Roberston! We are very pleased to announce that Karen Roberston has joined our teaching faculty for the next six weeks. Ms. Robertson is a trained eurythmist who will work with our students from Nursery through 7th grade in weekly classes. Originally from Eastern Pennsylvania, Ms. Robertson has lived for the past several years in Northern California while she studied at the American Eurythmy School near Mount Shasta, CA. Depending on parent interest she will offer an adult eurythmy class. There will be a performance by grades 4, 5, 6, and 7 at the end of Ms. Robertson’s time in our school and all parents are welcome to attend this on May 14th at 11am in the auditorium. We are very happy to have Ms. Robertson and welcome all parents to stop by the school to say hello.
Those unfamiliar with the art form may be asking themselves, “What is eurythmy?” Formed in the early 1910s, Eurythmy is understood to be a movement art relating the human to the space in which he/she moves, and is “visible speech and visible tone.” Each gesture is imbued with meaning – which is paralleled in our Waldorf School’s classrooms where every lesson and experience should be grounded in meaning. Many Waldorf Schools have a full time Eurythmist, and we are very happy to be able to bring this important element of the Waldorf curriculum into our school for a six week block!
