Isadora Duncan

Duncan, Isadora (1878–1927), U.S. pioneer of modern dance. Encouraging a spontaneous personal style, she danced in a loose tunic, barefoot, to symphonic music. After European concert successes, she founded schools of dancing in Germany, the USSR, and the United States. She was strangled by a scarf caught in a car wheel.
