With Catherine Gallant and members of Dances by Isadora
Mark Morris Dance Center

Brooklyn, NY 11217-1415
The dance of Isadora Duncan is highly adaptable for different populations, levels of experience, and ages. It may be looked at purely through the lens of dance history focusing on its basis as modern dance in the 20th century or, for professional track dancers, the technique and repertoire provide a new perspective to students of ballet and contemporary dance. The underlying creative movement aspect of the work brings experimentation and body awareness to children, non-dancers and those who may benefit from dance as a therapeutic experience.
Our priorities emphasize the unique and powerful movement qualities of each performer as they relate to the technique and repertoire of Isadora Duncan. Our practice is lead by ongoing inquiry, consistent and probing feedback and an openness to new ideas and approaches that will engage our expanding audience.
