Summer 2018 in Athens, Greece
July 2-11, 2018
Greek culture, its art, mythology, and philosophy greatly influenced and inspired the work of dance icon Isadora Duncan. Artistic Director of the Isadora Duncan Dance Foundation, Lori Belilove, has been invited by The Isadora & Raymond Duncan Dance Research Center in Athens, Greece to continue Isadora’s mission and leadership in dance through the training of next generation dancers. The Foundation in turn is inviting select participants to join in the dance in the place where much of it originated… GREECE!
Schedule is subject to change! Check back in the new year for full program information, including registration and fees.
