Michel Fokine

Fokine, Michel (1880–1942), Russian-born U.S. dancer and choreographer, a founder of modern ballet. Influenced by the work of Isadora Duncan, he stressed the total effect of expressive dancing, costume, music, and scenery. He worked in Paris as chief choreographer of Sergei Diaghilev's Ballets Russes (1909–14), and from 1925 directed his own company in the United States.
