While living in Utah, I learned about Isadora Duncan. She was a revolutionary dancer at the turn of the century. She danced barefoot, and wore mostly scarves when she performed her free-formed, fluid dances. At the time when proper ballet was the trend, she turned pop culture on its head and changed the expression of dance forever.
