Dancing Stories: For Movement and Circle Time with Young Children

Wendalyn Von Meyenfeldt

As the stories in this book "dance" through the seasons of the year, each one offers ample opportunity to add movement and gestures that bring rhythm and flow to the telling. Movement activity makes a story visible to young children, bringing them to experience the joy of creation. In living each story, children traverse new inner pathways as they outwardly perform or experience the ups and downs of a tale. The vivid, colorful images and lively rhythmic language will be inspiring to anyone who works with young children.


Wendalyn von Meyenfeldt is a longtime instructor and therapist in Eurythmy and movement who began her career teaching kindergarten in several North American Waldorf Schools. It was her interest and delight in movement and circle time work with young children that led her to write stories and do further studies in expressive movement arts. Wendalyn currently lives on a beautiful island off the west coast of Canada. When not harvesting apples or making jam, she teaches early childhood caregivers in several training institutes. The tall cedars, watchful deer, and salty seas around her home continue to inspire her stories.
