From the early years we learn about the world and our place in it through movement.
Movement orients us in space, in relation to others, allowing us to be active in the world. We particularly use our hands, which, as a result of our upright stature, are free to create and express our inner experiences.
Learning through movement is integral to the Steiner curriculum and the movement art of Eurythmy is taught in many kindergartens, primary and high schools. Age-appropriate movement with music, stories and poetry encourages dexterity, coordination, confidence, social and spatial awareness, inner flexibility and grace.
The Steiner curriculum provides a balanced approach to gymnastics, dance, social games and team sports, continually building upon movement and physical skills learnt in the early years.
