The Art and Technique of Isadora Duncan program offers participants the celebratory exploration of relationship to peers, classical music, and the natural world. BCF founder and director Dicki Johnson Macy, BC-DMT, LMHC, is a lineage holder in this dance heritage and has been teaching for 30 years.
Weekly Duncan Dance classes are offered at the Dance Complex (536 Mass Ave, Cambridge, MA) for students aged 18 months to adult. Mothers of 8-11 year olds may dance along in their child’s class for free. Mothers of teens may pay a reduced rate to join their child’s class.
Toddlers and preschoolers begin with our Rainbowdance Enrichment Programs. A structured sequence of sound and gesture-integrated movement activities encourages secure attachment to caregivers and peers, while providing a soothing and energizing experience of engaging with the natural world. Having established a sense of harmony and connection to self, peers, and the inherent beauty of nature, children ages 5-11 move forward to explore emotional intention as is it manifested through music and movement. Themes include: Leadership and Following, Solitude and Affiliation, Transition, Nature as Teacher, Myth-Based Dances, and Improvisation. Our class for teens and adults builds upon these themes, offering an hour of respite and rejuvenation for mind and body.
