Our May Scottish Hero, Isadora Duncan was a world-renowned classical dancer who changed the way women preformed in the 20th century and is known today as “The Mother of Dance.” Duncan was born in San Francisco in 1878 and in her autobiography she claimed to have Ulster-Scottish ancestry. After leaving California for Chicago to audition for different dance companies she eventually would find acclaim around the whole world and particularly in Europe where she founded several dance schools. Her naturalistic style and insistence on dancing barefoot and in a loose fitting free-flowing tunic scandalized early 20th century audiences but did much to emancipate women from restrictive Victorian clothing and styles of performance.
