On behalf of the DSA Board of Trustees and the Dalcroze community across the USA, I extend the deepest of sympathies to the family and colleagues of Paul Hille. Paul was a fixture in the international Dalcroze Education world, as a past president of FIER and a tireless force advocating for the practice of Dalcroze Eurhythmics. He was a friend and mentor to many here in the United States and our hearts go out to those who feel this painful loss.I personally attended a weekend of workshops given by Paul, and his unparalleled teaching artistry, as well as his gentle kindness, made a profound impact on both my life and my approach to the work.
We’d like to send our warmest condolences to his beloved husband Michael Schnack. The passing of Paul Hille is a loss for all of us, and we carry on his legacy by remaining devoted to the practice of Eurhythmics worldwide.
