The Art of the Dance
Updated: Sep 21
"The dancer of the future will be one whose body and soul have grown so harmoniously together that the natural language of that soul will have to become the movement of the body. She will dance not in the form of a nymph, nor fairy, nor coquette, but in the form of woman in its greatest and purest expression. She will have danced the changing life of nature showing how each part is transformed into the other... She will dance the freedom of women. She will dance the body emerging again from centuries of civilized forgetfulness... no longer at war with spirituality and intelligence, but joining them in a glorious harmony." (Isadora Duncan 1928)
Photo shows me dancing on a beach by the Atlantic Ocean in 2019, like one of her students Anna Duncan did.
