You were wild once. Don't let them tame you. - Isadora Duncan (Jeanne Bresciani is the dancer)

Isadora Duncan (1877-1927) was a dancer, considered by many to be the creator of modern dance. Born in the United States, she lived in Western Europe and the Soviet Union from the age of 22 until her death at age 50. In the United States she was popular only in New York, and only later in her life. She performed to acclaim throughout Europe.  Duncan's fondness for flowing scarves was the cause of her death in an automobile accident in Nice, France.
