Rhythm in the asylum: Priscilla Barclay and the development of Dalcroze Eurhythmics as a form of music therapy’

For Émile Jaques-Dalcroze (1865-1950), his method of rhythmic gymnastics (known in Anglophone cultures as Dalcroze Eurhythmics) could be summed up on the five digits of the hand: music, movement, the theatre, arts in education and therapy. Priscilla Barclay (1905-1994) was one of many Dalcroze Eurhythmics practitioners whose work encompassed all of these, but focused on the last.
