Check Out this Great Article with Simple Ideas for Creating Rhythm and Ritual at Home

In "Rhythm, Ritual, and the Unexpected," Sherry Jennings at High Mowing speaks to our longing as parents to create rich childhood memories and how we can implement simple ideas - like always having pancakes on a snow day! - to give our children's lives the kind of predictability that makes for a memorable childhood experience.

Adult Eurythmy with former CWS Faculty Connie Michael

“I have thoroughly enjoyed the challenge of the Eurythmy class, the movement with its richness of language and verse has been life giving.  Connie is an excellent teacher, sharing her depth and beauty in this art form of Eurythmy.'' -Kare Egan 

Hello fellow Cincinnati Waldorf Community members and alums! 


My name is Connie Michael. I am a founding member of the CWS Waldorf Grade school, and former Eurythmy teacher for early childhood and grades at the Cincinnati Waldorf School. I have taught children and adults since 1981. I am reaching out to a larger community in hopes of more people benefitting from the experience of Eurythmy for personal and social renewal. I teach on Saturday mornings, 1-3 times a month, in my Clifton Studio.

Classes are:

For people 16 yrs and older, Saturday mornings in my Clifton studio from 10 to 11 am. It can be your choice to participate as needed, or to join in more often as a committed core group does, that is invested in developing a deepening effect and understanding of Eurythmy. We are considering a future goal of orienting our exercises and pieces into small performances for our annual festivals. I hope that you will consider joining!
