Summer Refresher for
Eurythmists: Waldorf Pedagogy
with Dorothea Mier, Laura Radefeld
and Susan Eggers

August 18-22

Our Summer Refresher Course for eurythmists will follow on the heels of the Mystery Drama conference in Spring Valley, NY. Opening Monday morning, August 18, 2014, we will deepen our work with major/minor/dissonance, led by Dorothea Mier. This is a study not focused on Waldorf pedagogy primarily, but as a deepening of the foundational work for all of our teaching.

The course will include artistic work together, as well as time for sharing Waldorf curriculum questions and ideas, especially around the theme of building the musical capacities of students through the grades. Lastly, the refresher will include a study being introduced at the Pedagogical Section conference this summer on the theme of Pedagogy and Technology. We will work with the arts — music, eurythmy and speech — in "real time," and also recorded and replayed; seeing, doing and reflecting on these experiences.

Tuition: $400. Scholarships are available through the generous support of the Eurythmy Association of North America. The deadline for registration and scholarship requests is August 8.

Information: Call 845-352-5020 x13 or email info@eurythmy.org.

The Art of Acting:
Drama As a Path of
Inner Development

Ten weekend workshops
from October 2014 to June 2015
First workshop: October 18

In ten weekend workshops from October to June, Laurie Portocarrero leads The Art of Acting on a journey into the essence of human self-expression.

Each workshop blends the exercises of Michael Chekhov with movement, gesture and speech work drawn from a variety of supportive techniques. Most classes include instruction from speech artist Jennifer Kleinbach. In addition, special workshops on clowning and improvisation are contributed by Laura Geilen of Nose to Nose of North America and David Anderson of Walking the dog Theater. At the end of the year, the course culminates in a public performance/sharing.

Whether acting is an avocation or your vocation, this course is a challenging, supportive, playful, soul-stretching opportunity to pursue deeper self-awareness through art. You need only bring a desire and willingness to play and explore!
