The local Studies in Anthroposophy group is planning a two-week course in eurythmy, artistic explorations in movement, with Patricia Pierce. The course run weekdays from 4:15 to 5:30 p.m., July 8 through 19, at the Ashwood Waldorf School, 180 Park St.

The spoken word and tones and intervals in music can be the keys to this connection between ourselves and the universe. Participants will explore these archetypal gestures by working with the rhythms and sounds in poetry, forms moved with others in space and the musical scale as a path of human development.

Pierce is a teacher of eurythmy in the early childhood program and lower school at the Waldorf School of Garden City in Long Island, N.Y. Raised in Philadelphia, she completed her undergraduate degree from Temple University and she received her eurythmy diploma from the School of Eurythmy in Spring Valley, N.Y. She also competed the Goethean Studies Program (now Consciousness Studies) at the Rudolf Steiner College.

No previous eurythmy experience is required. Space is limited and there is a fee; for more information, call 370-1246 or visit
