Eurhythmics at CIM

An exploration of music through movement and sound, taught in a group setting. Students develop sensitivities to musical moods, structure and rhythm through intuitive kinesthetic experiences and games.

Three Eurhythmics programs are offered at CIM; Children's Eurhythmics for ages 3-6, Youth Eurhythmics I for ages 5-10, and Youth Eurhythmics II geared for intermediate musicians ages 11-18. Class sizes range from 5-15 students.

Applying for Fall 2020 Semester

For fall classes, students may participate in-person or virtually. For in-person instruction, students and faculty will be required to wear masks. In addition, faculty will reinforce proper social distancing during each class and follow CIM's safety protocols to ensure a safe learning and teaching environment for all. CIM has implemented strict safety measures in order to keep the community safe. You can learn about some of the many protocols currently in place on our Safety page. For students who feel more comfortable participating virtually—especially younger students who have difficulty with masks—an online only class is available on Thursday afternoons.
