About (Profile/Biography):

Isadora Duncan, a well-known American dancer, was born in California, U.S.  Modern contemporary dance was invented by Angela Isadora Duncan, who danced to enthusiastic audiences in both the US and Europe. Her father was publicly humiliated and fired from his bank position shortly after she was born. By the time her parents split in 1880, the family had already fallen into a very dire situation. She and her sister Elizabeth taught dancing to kids in the neighbourhood to make additional money. She labelled ballet as a school of "affected grace and toe walking" after taking several ballet lessons when she was nine years old.

Isadora Duncan Career:

Duncan joined Augustin Daly's stage group in New York in 1896.

She relocated to London in 1898 and gave performances in the wealthy people's drawing rooms.

In 1902, Loie Fuller paid a visit to her studio and extended an invitation for a tour.

She established her first school in 1905 to impart her dance philosophy to young women.

When she came back to the country in 1914, she opened a school.

In 1917, she performed solo Iphigenia sequences in San Francisco.

She travelled to the Soviet Union in 1921 and started a school in Moscow.

Achievements and Awards:

The Dance of the Future, a pamphlet that Duncan delivered as a lecture in Berlin in 1903, was published.

She wrote My Life, her autobiography that was published posthumously, with the encouragement of her friends.

Isadora Duncan died by strangulation after her scarf became tangled between the spokes of a friend's vehicle. Duncan's ashes were interred with those of her children after being cremated.
