Fridays 12:30–2:30 pm
January 18 through May 17, 2019
(no class 3/22)

This class is taught by Francesca Todesco, a long time Duncan dancer who trained with Catherine Gallant and Loretta Thomas.  This class offers an introduction into the technique and repertoire of legendary dance innovator, Isadora Duncan. This rare opportunity to study the expressive movement vocabulary of Isadora Duncan will focus on the distinct elements of her technique and relate the work to dance history and contemporary practice. An unconventional genius in her time, Duncan created works which have retained their vitality and relevance for today’s dancers. In each session we will experience the full body flow of the technique and then explore dances from Duncan’s sensational and sensual repertoire.

Dancers of all levels are welcome. No prior Duncan training necessary. Check out additional monthly classes at MMDC and weekly classes at Moving Visions Dance.
