From a performance by Roberta Hoffman at Isadora's Legacy in 2005.
This lyrical dance was choreographed
by Isadora Duncan, circa 1917, and reconstructed by Hortense
Kooluris. It is a very fast, light dance that creates the
impression of endless flitting, pausing, and fluttering.
The dancer should stay high on the balls of the feet using the
Duncan running waltz - 1,2,3 - 1,2,3. The dance has many
fast, tiny steps. The dancer does not become a butterfly
but rather experiences the freedom of the flight of a butterfly.
