About eurythmics

Eurythmics, or the art of interpreting music through body movements, was invented by Swiss composer Jacques Dalcroze in the early 20th century. Dalcroze and his proponents believed that his method of 'good rhythm' would liberate a person's mental, physical and emotional powers.

Eurythmics gained a certain popularity in Europe and Australia in the 1920s. In Melbourne, it was practised at girls' schools and a recital was even proposed in connection with the Eight Hours Day demonstrations. Historic newspapers offer intriguing insights into a form of physical culture that, with its Grecian-style outfits and abstract body movements, appears curiously contemporary and old-fashioned at the same time.
