American Eurhythmics Society

American Eurhythmics Society LogoThe mission of the American Eurhythmics Society (AES) is to promote the use of eurhythmics among music and other arts educators. The AES provides education, outreach, and engagement on a national level. 

The American Eurhythmics Society, founded in 2014, acknowledges the work of composer, dancer and educator Emile Jaques-Dalcroze, his students who clarified and furthered the practice of Eurhythmics, and those who incorporated Eurhythmics beyond music education and into theatre, dance, and therapy. Evidence of the strength and appeal of the eurhythmics approach are in its dispersal and practice globally, and a bond exists among its supporters and teachers.
