Isadora Duncan and Dances by Isadora

Isadora Duncan, born in San Francisco in 1877, was a pioneer in her presentation and approach to movement in the art of dance. She was the first to choreograph to music not originally written for dance, including the works of such composers as Chopin, Brahms, Schubert and Scriabin. Duncan's career was marked by controversy as American audiences took exception to her bare limbs and bold approach to music and movement. Isadora Duncan created her work circa 1897 to 1923. She began creating solos and then later included her six “adopted” daughters Anna, Irma, Theresa, Lisa, Erica and Margot. These women opened their own schools of Duncan dance to continue her lineage. Dances by Isadora - Boston is part of the 3rd and 4th generation of Duncan dancers.

Dances by Isadora - Boston is a non-profit, tax-exempt organization dedicated to preserving the repertoire and technique of Isadora Duncan while creating programs that include historic and contemporary dance.
