Isadora Duncan

There is only one known piece of film footage of Isadora Duncan dancing - and it's about five seconds long. She wasn't a belly dancer, but her approach (in terms of focusing on using the body's natural range of movement and eschewing the often physically damaging aspects of ballet) is one that many raqs practitioners can relate to.

What's lovely about this is that she's wearing her favoured garment, a variation on the Greek chiton.
