    14th Eurhythmics Workshop and International Eurhythmics Competition 2016

    How can we join people from different origin with artistic processes in a „safe place“ to absorb ethic values into everyday life?
    Where and in which shape can the artistic, educational and therapeutic ideas be found which were spread like seeds from Hellerau throughout the world since 1914?

    Concerning this matter, there is an International Competition to be announced within the 14th Eurhythmics Workshop DALCROZE 2016.
    An international jury will choose from the applicants who will have the chance to present their contributions at Festspielhaus Hellerau. Some of the participants will come off as winners, the best group will get a trophy of EUR 1000, the 2nd and 3rd prize winners are able to look forward to some material prizes.

    In addition, the audience will choose a favorite act. The most popular group will get a trophy of EUR 500.

    Finally, every participant gets a certificate and a DALCROZE 2016 medal.
