Eurhythmics is a powerful and exciting way of knowing music through the
body. Children use their body to explore
rhythm, musical components and expression.
The preschool and kindergarten years are an optimal time to explore a language
of music through social and interactive methods which encourage their
creativity and musicality in a joyful way.
In collaboration with the Dalcroze School of the Rockies, we are
pleased to offer classes for children ages 3-6.

Jaques-Dalcroze, the Dalcroze approach offers a discovery-based, joyful,
independent and cooperative learning environment. The purposeful rhythmic movements and engaging activities
prepare students body as the instrument by increasing coordination, control,
balance, attention, spatial awareness, active listening, and vocal
precision. Eurhythmics classes provide a
deep and solid preparation to begin instrumental study, as well as enhance
musical abilities of students who are already involved in instrumental
