Polish ballet dancer and teacher, original name Cyvia Rambam.

Rambert, trained in eurythmics by Emile Jacques-Dalcroze, was hired by Diaghilev in 1913 to help the dancers with Igor Stravinsky's complicated rhythms in Le Sacre du Printemps (The Rite of Spring). She also danced with Diaghilev’s Ballets Russes after studying ballet with Enrico Cecchetti

In 1920 Rambert moved to London and opened her own dance studio. Ten years later she founded the Ballet Club at the Mercury Theatre, the first permanent school and company in England. This produced some of the finest dancers and choreographers of this century. Among of her famous students were Frederick Ashton, Antony Tudor, Walter Gore, Agnes de Mille, and Andrée Howard.

In later years Rambert was known to family and friends as “Mim”
