Eurythmics is one of the main subjects Rudolf Steiner suggested as a part of the regular education every person should cultivate. Escuela Caracol had the visit of two expert eurythmists, Siebe Martínez Bloembergen and Ruth Bloembergen Martínez.
Between 2010 and 2011, Siebe and Ruth studied a Bachelor in Pedagogical Eurythmics as a Social Eurythmics Program in La Haye (Netherlands), Lugano (Switzerland), Nant-y-cum (Wales) y Sekem (Egypt) and have been working eurythmics together since. Currently they live in El Salvador and work at the “Escuela Nacional de Danza” with children, teenagers and teachers from public schools; they also work an anthroposophy project at “Tutunichappa IV” community.
They arrived to Escuela Caracol on July the 30th and stayed for almost a week, sharing all their knowledge with teachers, students and rest of the community.
During their visit, they worked independently with each of the school grades; they also gave an introductory workshop on eurythmics to teachers and community members.
As a final activity and present to Escuela Caracol, our rhythmic friends prepared and produced the play “sleeping beauty from the forest” by the Grimm brothers; Siebe was in charge of musicalization and special effects; Ruth directed the play, and all of the first grade students played the roles. This was performed at la Palapa with the whole school as an audience.
