Taking it back to the old groove

Greetings :)

I had the pleasure of being introduced to dancer by the name of Loïe Fuller. She is well known as one of the earliest pioneers of modern dancing and was one of the first women to break away from the rigours of the ballet form of dancing. Being a woman who had a "fuller figure"she experimented with moves that were more rooted the ground and more oraginic movement but one her earliest performances is one that I would like to share with you. She has used the idea of movement and free flow so intrestingly. However the vido has been edited with but I still think it os something worth viewing. It is thanks to women like Fuller and many others ofcourse, that there has been an evolution in the kind of movement expected from the female form.
