Rima Faber is a brilliant dance educator, a Dalcroze enthusiast and a friend for many years. This article in Dance Teacher Magazine highlights her work with young children. She connects with students on a deep level, leads them to their own discoveries, and brings them to create dances that hold profound personal meaning.
Among her many accomplishments, Rima was a founding force for the National Dance Education Organization and spearheaded new Standards for Dance. Both of these have helped propel dance forward in public schools.
She’s an intellectual as much as an artist, and just being in her presence is like being plugged into a vibrant energy source! There’s nobody else quite like Rima. So for those who don’t know of her, I just thought I’d share!
