isadoraNOW fuses contemporary dance with historical preservation and uses Isadora’s timeless movement ideas to help modern audiences understand, appreciate, and relate to the art of dance.Under the direction of educator, artist, and historian Elyssa Dru Rosenberg, who holds a Masters in Dance & Dance Education from NYU, isadoraNOW has been presented at numerous prestigious venues.  A fourth-generation Duncan dancer, Elyssa’s dancing has been described as “radiant” and “magnetic,” while her efforts to keep Isadora’s work relevant for a new generation have been praised as “refreshing.”

Who was Isadora?: Just a couple of small edits on my writing… Could you remove the two footnotes, since we don’t have a references area?  Also, please change the references to “Duncan” to “Isadora.”  For consistency.

Dancers: Please move Raleigh Veach to just below me.  Could you add “(Company Manager)” to her bio?  Also, I had sent you a new version of her bio, do you need me to resend that?  Is it possible to have my title and hers listed there?  Also, you left off Rachel Talley.  Do you need me to resend her bio?  As soon as I have them, I would like to add pictures to the dancers page, is there space for that?
