Dalcroze Eurhythmics teaches concepts of rhythm, structure and musical expression through movement. Dalcroze not only helps to sharpen the sense of listening, but also all other senses, particularly the kinesthetic sense.

“My kid is still too little, but I can’t wait till he’s old enough to do this! I commend you for offering it – my father studied Dalcroze at his primary school in Germany and credited it with forming his lifelong, impeccable musicianship. I regret I never had the opportunity to do it myself.” – Brooklyn mom

“Shout out to the Rubato Music School for introducing Dalcroze to the community! Did you know that Music Together grew in large measure out of the Dalcroze method? Ken Guilmartin, one of MT’s co-creators, was heavily influenced by the Dalcroze idea that we need to get music in our bodies in order to truly assimilate it.” – Naomi Weinberger, Music Together teacher

“My 3 and 5 yo kids have been in Dalcroze classes this last year and it’s been very growthful for them. In my opinion, Dalcroze can be a great stepping stone between toddler sing alongs and instrument instruction because it introduces fundamental musical concepts of ear training and rhythm in a fun and interactive way. At these ages, kids absorb so much but my kids were/are not ready for the daily practice required to study an instrument. We tried out a couple of other preschool level music foundation classes in the area but found the Dalcroze classes more structured and methodical, as well as a lot more fun!” – Brooklyn mom

“When I became a parent, I was already aware of the Dalcroze Eurhythmics classes for young children.By the time my children were 4 years, they were taking Dalcroze classes. One is now a cellist, the other was with NYC Ballet & Joffrey. They are adults who developed an appreciation of classical music (and other forms). I believe Dalcroze Eurhythmics made a huge contribution. Not everyone does or should become musicians or dancers, but Dalcroze helps develop rhythmic movements, ear training, and improvisation. And the kids have fun!!!” – Harriet Semegram Barry, professional singer, teacher of the Alexander Technique, Certified Lamaze childbirth educator

“Thank you Evi for organizing this program! Coincidentally I’ve been on the lookout for a movement program that incorporated basic music education with interactive movement. The class with Sabine is perfect. The songs are catchy and repeated at home both by my 3 year old and her 7 year old brother who observes the class from the sidelines. My daughter is learning music theory, conducting and measures in a very playful form that encourages her music exploration and curiosity. Highly recommend this class.” – Mom of current Dalcroze student
