Classic Isadora

Dancing through Greece in the footsteps of Isadora Duncan are Skidmore professor Mary DiSanto-Rose with ten of her students, and Jeanne Bresciani ’72 with dancers from the Isadora Duncan International Institute, which she directs. The summer tour included study of myth and civilization from Delphi to Crete to Rhodes, a visit to the Athens dance school founded by Duncan in 1903, and performances at historic sites. Marissa Carr ’06 says,“In the temples and ancient sites we visited, I felt a spiritual connection with the space and with the dancers around me,” and Karla Hawkins ’07 concludes, “I learned so much about Greece, dance, and myself.” —SR
