My 35 years of teaching experience convince me that Eurythmics is today more relevant than ever, for we live at a time when technologies require that people disconnect from their physical environment in order to experience a virtual one. Eurythmics is a discipline that restores us to our lost organic connections.
The conscious guidance of movement is a central concept to this process. It has to do not only with music and rhythm, but also with our everyday life, alone or in relation to others. Each movement-interaction requires the discovery of our full potential, and of what prevents its actualization.

Background
I have a degree in Musical Education and Eurythmics from the Conservatory in Munich, where I studied with Prof. Amélie Hoellering at Rhythmikon. Outlining the scope and dimension of what awaited us during our 4 years of study, she quoted Eurythmics’ founder, Jacques-Dalcroze: “... a true pedagogue must be a psychologist, physiologist and a creating artist all in one”. Her passion and commitment to the subject were always driven by the quality and dynamics of interpersonal relationship--an aspect integral to her teachings, and to the students’ practices.

Afterwards, I became certified as a Taketina rhythm teacher. Using polyrhythms in multi-layered movements, this system of self-integration consists of vocalized syllables executed in combination with steps and claps or small percussion. While similar to the interpretation of a two-part invention by Bach using our feet and hands, as a method Taketina is different in its repetitive rhythms and melodic patterns. Here, too, in dealing with the topic of coordination the individual is inevitably confronted with a deeper truth about themselves.
My studies in Taketina were an in-depth practice of the basic elements in musical and rhythmic structures, one which today serves me well for creating complex and original lessons for eurhythmics.

What I Do
With my teaching, I give workshops at symposia, and congresses in Europe and in the USA, where I also coach musicians and teachers of music. While in Europe, I teach graduate and certificate courses at the Lucerne University of Applied Sciences and Arts, and mentor practicing teachers at the Music-School-Conservatory, in Zurich. As of 2020, I am currently chairman of the board of FIER.

DE BOUYALSKY, Michèle

C’est après avoir suivi la filière traditionnelle de l’apprentissage de la danse que je suis arrivée à l’Institut de Rythmique Jaques-Dalcroze de Bruxelles. L’enseignement de la Rythmique, du mouvement fonctionnel et de l’eutonie m’a permis de développer la compréhension et la conscience du mouvement ainsi que la senation corporelle stimulée, guidée et vécue de plus en plus étroitement par et pour la musique. La musique et la danse m’accompagnent depuis ma plus tendre enfance et j’ai eu la chance, grâce à la méthode Dalcroze et à l’esprit qui s’en dégage, de pouvoir fusionner les deux à travers le cours que j’y ai créé en 1980 et qui me passionne davantage chaque jour: la chorégraphie ryhtmique.

«Chorégraphie Rythmique» Vivre la musique, la faire sienne, la traduire naturellement en mouvements, voilà la projet passionnant de la chorégraphie rythmique. Son but est de musicaliser l’élève au maximum, de l’imprégner de rythmes et de nuances et de le rendre capable d’interpréter naturellement et avec justesse les intentions du compositeur quelle que soit la nature de la source sonore. La chorégraphie rythmique existe si l’on y trouve une équivalence entre la musique des sons et la musique des gestes, une fusion entre la musique et le mouvement. Dès lors, chacun réalisera que chaque image sonore, chaque sensation, peut engendrer une pensée significative.

To this end she has given numerous workshops and teacher training programs on the Dalcroze teaching methods. In 1994 she became chief editor of the Dalcroze Eurhythmics Journal and in 1998 Chair of the Board of Dalcroze Society of Taiwan. She is currently as an associate professor teaching the Dalcroze Eurhythmics and Piano at the National Tsing Hua University, University of Taipei, and Soochow University. She was recently appointed to serve as the Committee Member of Curriculum & Instruction Consulting Committee on Life Curriculum in Ministry of Education . These qualifications clearly demonstrate her professionalism.
