Swedish Eurhythmics 1906–1978 – emancipating embodied knowledge

Incca Rasmusson, PhD student in music education at KMH, describes her dissertation:

Eurhythmics is an experience-based method of teaching music through movement, and movement through music. The purpose of this dissertation is to, in perspective of the view of the body and corporal learning, position Swedish Eurhythmics teacher education and Eurhythmics teaching in higher music education, in a historical, national and international context.

Verbalizing Eurhythmics in perspective of embodiment, will hopefully benefit the profession, and a scientific dissertation in the field can give Eurhythmics teaching a scientific basis in Sweden.
