Isadora Duncan Dance Residency in Greece

2017 Isadora Duncan Dance Residency in GreeceModern dancers are invited to join Lori Belilove for an inspiring 10-day residency at The Isadora & Raymond Duncan Dance Research Center in Athens, Greece this July.


As Greek art, mythology and philosophy greatly influenced and inspired modern dance pioneer Isadora Duncan, Greece is the perfect place for dancers to study her technique with morning classes and evening choreographic workshops.


2017 Isadora Duncan Dance Residency in GreeceResidency participants will travel as a group to visit museums and archeological sites in Athens and will fully immerse themselves in the rich culture of Greece. They’ll read writings by Duncan, Greek poets and philosophers, and study ancient Greek art and history. The notes and sketches from these observations will help in the creation of new movement work.


The residency will also include technique classes for local children, open to those interested in teacher training. Plus, dancers participating in the evening choreographic workshops will present an informal studio showing on the last day.
