Statement of Purpose

Bachelor of Music in Eurhythmics

The history of eurhythmics training at CIM dates to the earliest beginnings of the institution. The Eurhythmics department is a special feature of the educational training at CIM and continues to enhance the education of all undergraduates. The eurhythmics program aims to develop the natural instinct for rhythm - the program teaches immediate mental and physical response to verbal commands or changes in rhythm, and develops the physical realization or interpretation by the body of all forms of rhythmic and dynamic expression. In addition to physical education, eurhythmics develops mental stimulation, and the coordination of mind and body through the ideal medium of musical rhythm.

The study of eurhythmics develops rhythmic movement – mental and physical coordination through the study of musical rhythm, expressed in bodily movement – and plastic movement – including the technical analysis of posture, walking, running, jumping, and various exercises. Through the assimilation and synthesis of the coursework within this curriculum, a recipient of the Bachelor of Music in Eurhythmics will demonstrate mastery of the following skills: rhythmic excellence, musicianship through keyboard improvisation, pedagogy and movement awareness.

A short overview of the essence of eurhythmics at CIM is available on CIM's YouTube channel, at: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=XMBdg4u4f78.
