THE ART & TECHNIQUE OF ISADORA DUNCAN
June 28 – August 3, 2016
The choreographic etudes of Isadora Duncan explore, through the action/rest continuum, the dynamic relationship between affiliation and solitude. Celebrating Nature’s unity and rhythm, these dances, remembering ancient rituals and archetypes, are simultaneously tribal and divine. The indomitable human spirit, ever hopeful, is present in this choreography, and in all true healing.
Duncan Dance classes for children offer a non competitive environment designed to encourage healthy emotional, creative, and physical development. Dicki Johnson Macy BC-DMT, M.Ed.,LMHC, IDMA, has for the past 25 years, encouraged children trained in this technique, to remain responsive to beautiful music and to the joyful movements inspired by nature. Self esteem, grace, reverence, reciprocity and artistry are inherent to the work. A sense of rhythm and harmony develops as children dance the reconstructed choreographies to the music of Schubert, Chopin, Brahms, Beethoven, and Mozart.
