Dancing Bears and Painted Wings, Things I Almost Remember

Published by Samantha under Uncategorized


Loie Fuller singlehandedly brought together traditional skirt dance with multicolored lighting to create what became a world sensation know as the serpentine dance. A dance that was truly inventive for its time.

Jodie Sperling –founder of New York’s own Time Lapse Dance Company that reinvents classic genres of dance with contemporary influences– held this Seminar to speak about Loie Fuller, a dance pioneer in her day, despite the obstacles in her life, and hundreds of impersonators. While it was interesting to see artistic interpretations of Loie Fuller, it would have been better to see the original artist. On the bright side, listening to Sperling speak was more thought-provoking than I thought it would be. She showed me that dance is always evolving, but at the same time, timeless.

    The dancing was outstanding. i have never seen anything like that in my life. I was in utter shock, but I just did not like the fact that she took so long to get to the point. She should have showed the videos in the beginning.
