Spotlight 5/27:
Celebrating Isadora Duncan

To celebrate the modern dance pioneer’s 143rd birthday, we gathered on YouTube on Wednesday, May 27 for a special livestream of The Art of Isadora, featuring Lori Belilove and the Isadora Duncan Dance Company with a special guest: New York City Ballet principal dancer Sara Mearns. Afterward, viewers stayed for a live online conversation with Belilove and Mearns, moderated by Norton Owen. Read more about the event here. If you were unable to attend live, visit the YouTube link through Wednesday, June 3 to watch a recording of this event.
