Rhythmic values can be described as simply longs and shorts, and these longs and shorts can combined into several different combinations, or ‘rhythmic modes.’ In this Dalcroze Eurhythmics workshop, where the body experiences music theory in movement and games, participants will discover and experience the four most common rhythmic modes in a joyful environment consisting of movement, group activities, and improvisation, with an ending application to a piece of composed music. A pedagogy talk-back will follow the eurhythmics session.
