Dancer, choreographer and educator, Catherine Gallant, was introduced to Isadora Duncan’s work when she saw Annabelle Gamson perform on television in a Dance in America program on PBS in the late 1970’s. She then began her study of the technique of Isadora Duncan with Julia Levien in NYC and with Sylvia Gold in Boston (students of Anna and Irma Duncan two of Isadora's six students know as the "Isadorables"). Ms. Gallant is the founder (along with Patricia Adams) of Dances by Isadora which has brought the work of Isadora Duncan (1877-1927) to vibrant life for audiences in the US and abroad since 1989. Along with Catherine Gallant/DANCE, the NYC based group is dedicated to the growth of new work which comments on the past while looking to the future. Dances by Isadora and Catherine Gallant/DANCE have performed at the 92Y Harkness Dance Center, Jacob’s Pillow Dance Festival on the Inside/Out Series, American Dance Guild and Battery Dance Festival as well as theaters and museums throughout the US and Europe. Catherine currently performs the US version of Jerome Bel’s new work Isadora Duncan. Ms. Gallant has been the dance educator at PS 89 in NYC since 1998. She and her students are featured in the Emmy-nominated PBS documentary, PS DANCE!Catherine is on the faculty of the Dance Education Laboratory (DEL) and Hunter College. She holds a BFA in Dance from Boston Conservatory and an MFA in Dance from Temple University. Ms. Gallant is a founding member of the Isadora Duncan Archive.
