Continuing the Isadora Duncan Dance studies at Oak Street Dance studio, World Dance Alchemist Paola Blanton presents the "Dance of Dionysus" to the Ashland spring season. Based on the Dionysian Mysteries of Ancient Greece, the course will focus on movements from the Isadora Duncan repertory which illustrate the ecstatic rites of the Maenads, or followers of the Greek God of Wine, Fertility & Theater. There is no dance experience required to join this class. It is a perfect blend of history, myth, and the soulful Universal dance idiom of the Mother of Contemporary Dance, Isadora Duncan. Each participant will feel the merging of the arts, theater and ritual through this unique ritual dance and performance opportunity. Paola Blanton is internationally recognized for her visionary rendering of the Great Myths into Dance in the tradition of her beloved Muse Isadora Duncan and the great living Masters who have taught her.
