American dancer Isadora Duncan broke with the conventions of traditional ballet to become one of the originators of a new dance form focused on free, expressive movement. Featured is Dance of the Furies, drawn from Greek mythology. Lessons take students through experiences that explore qualities of heavy and light, designing an original character based on one or more qualities of the Furies, and introducing the Orpheus myth from Greek Mythology, which leads to a pantomime, or dance, based on Orpheus’ journey to the Underworld. Themes: Transformation, Power of Nature.
