Isadora Duncan, Founder of Modern Ballet
About Isadora Duncan
Born in San Francisco in 1877, Isadora Duncan was possibly the most influential advocate of modern dance internationally in the twentieth century. She brought her freeform movements and her toga-style dress, modeled after Greek sculpture, to packed audiences in dozens of countries.
Duncan's quest was to express the inner landscape through her body. It was not to achieve virtuosity of form or strength of line: "No pose, no movement, no gesture is beautiful in itself. Every movement is beautiful only when it is expressed truthfully and sincerely. The phrase 'the beauty of line' is--by itself--absurd. A line is beautiful only when it is directed toward a beautiful end."
"Pavlova's Dream" , about the inspiration...
Anna Pavlova was born in St Petersburg in 1881. She studied with the Imperial Ballet School. In 1907 she made her first foreign tour, and in 1908, on her second, joined Diaghilev's Ballets Russes. In 1912 she established her own school of dance. She spent the rest of her career almost constantly on tour, bringing ballet to millions for the first time through the drawing power of her legendary name.
