Isadora Duncan embodied both her time and the vision of a future. With music from older and contemporary composers, she created a unique dance form so intimately linked to the music and emerged from the vision of the new dance and the new man.
Isadora Duncan's new dance influenced and inspired artists such as Cocteau, Fokin, Rodin and Stanislavsky. The first school was opened in Grunewald, Berlin, 1904. Six of her young students from Grunewald followed her. In 1909, a French poet named them the "Isadorables".
“She emphasized the connectedness of body and soul at a time when links between human beings, their work, and the land were being severed and Victorian prudery shaped moral law.”
— Deborah Jowitt, dance critic, VILLAGE VOICE, 1998
