Isadora Duncan
Lois Ann Flood

The Los Altos Hills Historical Society 2nd annual dinner on Friday, June 8, 2012 with live performance of "Legacy of Isadora Duncan" by Diablo Dance Theater at the Palo Alto University Club, 3277 Miranda Avenue, Palo Alto, California

Isadora Duncan (1877-1927) is one of the most fascinating and controversial women in history. Breaking with classical ballet, Isadora liberated dance, elevating it to a new art form by expressing a theory of continuous movement that included a virtuosic sensitivity to the flow of energy into and out of the body. Her life - her becoming the world's most famous modern dancer, her tours, her schools and pupils, her disastrous marriage to Russian poet Sergei Esenin, the tragic drowning of her children and the bizarre death of Isadora death herself - has been told in countless articles and books. She was depicted by artists Auguste Rodin, Arnold Genthe, Jean Cocteau, and others. Director Ken Russell made a BBC film of her. Vanessa Redgrave portrayed her in director Karel Reisz's film Isadora and again on the London stage in Martin Sherman's When She Danced.

Lois Ann Flood has been performing the dances of Isadora Duncan for over 20 years. Her interpretations are widely recognized for their dynamic, expressive, and dynamic qualities. She has performed and taught master classes in New York City, Paris and San Francisco. In Northern California she performs lecture/dance programs The founder of Diablo Dancer Theatre, Lois resides in Danville, California.
