For the Waldorf student, music, dance, and theater, writing, literature, legends, and myths are not simply subjects to be read about, ingested, and tested. They are experienced. Through these experiences, Waldorf students cultivate a lifelong love of learning as well as the intellectual, emotional, physical, and spiritual capacities to be individuals certain of their paths and to be of service to the world.
