Michelle experienced eurythmy throughout her childhood in a Waldorf school in Cape Town. After completing her eurythmy training, she joined various performing groups, which included a tour in Russia, then became a permanent member of the Goetheanum Stage Group in Dornach, Switzerland. Over the years she has performed and held workshops in Europe and South Africa, taught in Eurythmy schools in Switzerland and England, and given Eurythmy to children in Waldorf schools.
Michelle now devotes her time to adults through the Centre for Creative Education, both in the Teacher Training programme and in Kairos Eurythmy Training. Her deep involvement in The Kairos Eurythmy Dance Company's artistic productions is leading her to seek closer relationships and interactions with other dance, drama and music companies.
When asked her opinion of eurythmy as an art form, Michelle commented, "My relationship with Eurythmy seems to grow deeper every day. I never cease to be amazed and delighted at the rich, fresh experiences it continues to offer. It inspires and motivates my creativity and constantly convinces me of its ability to be the synthesis of all arts – in my opinion it is a key to the ´art of life´ itself!"
