Duncan Classes

The Isadora Duncan Project, Inc. was founded in 1999 to continue the tradition of passing down the direct heritage of Isadora Duncan.

Ongoing dance classes are offered for adults. Its performing group,the Isadora Duncan Repertory Dancers, presents Duncan’s extant choreography.

Adult Classes: Duncan elements are taught as class moves from floor, to barre, to center through traveling rhythms. Exercises free the torso and build stamina. Selected repertory is introduced in each class.

Emphasis is on dancing! Previous dance experience is recommended.

Adult Classes are taught by Christina Bergren Fessenden. A graduate of UC Berkeley, she began her Duncan studies with Mignon Garland in 1974 performing under her direction with the San Francisco Duncan Dancers until 1977. At that time, she along with several of Garland’s former students started their own company, the Dionysian Duncan Dancers. A co-founder, she was artistic co-director of that company from 1977-1995 conducting classes and touring extensively throughout California for many years. Included in their Duncan repertory were several group pieces choreographed and taught by Maria-Theresa. In the 90s members of the DDD made several trips to Russia where they received coaching from former members of the Moscow Duncans. They gave their final performance at the Kremlin in 1995.
