The dances in this program are from the repertoire of Isadora Duncan, as handed down by her students and adopted daughters Anna, Irma, and Lisa Duncan.

While a brief biography, the history Duncan's career, and the history of the Ensemble are given in the introduction, the dances presented are Isadora Duncan's true biography, legacy, and the source of her legend
