On the following day, the Eurythmy Ensemble performed at a community school nearby the foundation before conducting a workshop for the teachers and students at the Ankuran Education Center in KRMEF. This workshop turned out to be a great opportunity for all attendees to gain a more in depth knowledge of the art form and its therapeutic benefits.

This expressive art of dance form was initiated by Rudolf Steiner- the pioneer of Waldorf education program adopted by the foundations Ankuran Education Centre. Eurhythmy is not only used as a performance art but also for educational purposes in Waldforf schools. The purpose of Eurhythmy in education is to awaken and strengthen the expressive capacities of children though movement while stimulating their imagination.

The Ensemble also received a tour of the foundation and was able to learn more about the goals of the foundation and current projects. The tour included a visit to a nearby leprosy community where they learnt about the people in the community. Light Eurythmy Ensemble then informally conducted their final performance there without any costumes or additional facilities.


The beautiful performance pieces turned out to have positive responses from audiences for which the foundation feels highly honored and thankful. Though it was the first time, KRMEF feels that it is just the beginning of a positive ongoing relationship with Light Eurythmy Ensemble. This program of performances and knowledge sharing was extremely valuable to both KRMEF and members of Light Eurhythmy Ensemble. This performance piece really helped in bringing the art form to life and as an inspiration to the Nepalese communities.
