John Maynard Keynes dances with wife, Russian ballerina Lydia Lopokova

Photo of happiness the day Maynard Keynes married Lydia Lopokova. Lydia was a Russian professional ballet dancer, not an intellectual. Maynard's friends were disturbed and worried about this, but the marriage was a long and contented one. This from Wikipedia on Keynes and lovers and Bloomsbury: Keynes' early romantic and sexual relationships were almost all with men. Homosexuality was not unusual in the Bloomsbury group in which Keynes was avidly involved. One of his great loves was the artist Duncan Grant, whom he met in 1908, and he was also involved with the writer Lytton Strachey. Keynes appeared to turn away from homosexual relationships around the time of the first World War.In 1918, he met Lydia Lopokova, a well-known Russian ballerina, and they married in 1925. My note - It seems to me that the only male in the inner realms of the Bloomsbury group who did not have male as well as female lovers were Leonard Woolf & Clive Bell.

Isadora Duncan.

Born in San Francisco in 1877, Isadora Duncan has become known as the mother of modern dance, but perhaps more importantly she stands as a brilliant example of a woman with an incredible self-belief and a determination to offer the world the art she loved.

Isadora Duncan : Mother of Modern Dance and introduces apparatus into movement... a legacy for dancers and gymnasts alike!........ RMR4 INTERNATIONAL.INFO PRODUCT LINE SHOWCASE WEBINAR BROADCAST at: www.rmr4international.info/500_tasty_diabetic_recipes.htm ....... Don't miss our webinar!❤........

Isadora Duncan (May 27, 1877 — September 14, 1927) was a dancer, considered by many to be the creator of modern dance. Born in the United States, she lived in Western Europe and the Soviet Union from the age of 22 until her tragic death at age 50.

Isadora Duncan : Mother of Modern Dance and introduces apparatus into movement... a legacy for dancers and gymnasts alike!

Isadora Duncan - The Mother of Modern Dance. Her dancing was as controversial as her personal philosphy, politics and love life. Her body just exuded the gracefulness, energy and joy of the natural elements, plant life and creatures of nature. I was first drawn to Isadora by a roommate who is the adopted daughter of one of her nieces but it was an iconic Isadora quote; "You were wild once. Don't let them tame you." that rang a bell which continues to echo in my soul.

Ginger Rogers did everything Fred Astaire did, only backwards and in high heels.

...I spent all day, dreaming of the way I'd like to hold you...And I got absolutely nothing done, but it was so much fun & have I told you? How beautiful you are - tonight? Just like a movie star?

This gorgeous ostrich feather dress worn by Ginger Rogers was a backless, bias-cut marvel. Worn in 1935's TOP HAT, the dress had an ethereal, floating feel about it. Per Ginger's autobiography, the feathers flying off the dress drove Fred Astaire crazy in take after take. At the end of the shoot her gave her a gold feather for her charm bracelet as well as the nickname "Feathers".

FRED ASTAIRE AND GINGER ROGERS Allan Scott and Dwight Taylor (screenplay, based on a play by Sándor Faragó, Alada Laszlo, and Károly Nóti), Irving Berlin and Max Steiner (music), Mark Sandrich (director) Top Hat / 1935 With great song and dance numbers such as "Isn't This a Lovely Day," "Fancy Free," "The Piccolino" and "Top Hat, White Tie and Tails," it seems almost impossible to select just one dance! But of all Astaire's and Rogers' performances throughout their years as a duo, the most memorable of all may be their brilliant "Cheek to Cheek." In terms of the plot, the number might never have happened. Dale Tremont (Ginger Rogers) is furious with Jerry Travers (Fred Astaire), whom she believes to be her good friend Madge Hardwick's husband, Horace. Travers has flirted with Tremont, but Madge seemingly doesn't care, for, in reality, she is trying to marry off Travers, suggesting Tremont as the perfect match. It is with due hesitation, accordingly, that Tremont accepts his offer to dance. As he begins the love song, moreover, she turns several times to Madge, pondering what to do, but Madge merely motions that they should get closer together. The dance begins as a simple waltz, with Travers (Astaire) stopping several times to sing the famous lyrics ("Heaven, I'm in Heaven / And my heart beats so loudly I can hardly speak / And I seem to find the happiness I seek / When we're out together dancing cheek to cheek"). After each stop they dance for a while, until suddenly, at the music's crescendo, they swing upstairs, she spinning before laterally jumping, Astaire moving into a soft tap. Both leap, moving backwards, then forward, until in a final pas de deau, Rogers being gently lifted before Astaire lets her down, the two spin, returning to the quiet waltz. Perhaps the most notable thing about this dance is Roger's beautiful white feathered dress (at least it appears white on the screen; the lining, so I have read, in reality was blue) that is so absolutely breathtaking a costume that we might forgive them, he in his tuxedo and she in the gown, if they merely stood there talking. Yet their graceful dancing on top, equally transports us into "Heaven." Astaire and the director had tried to dissuade Rogers from wearing the dress, and as she began to dance, just as they feared, the feathers flew off every time she made a move. Astaire described it as something akin to "a chicken being attacked by a coyote." You can still see some few feathers floating through the air at scene's end. And after this event, Rogers' nickname became "feathers." Los Angeles, April 16, 2011

Modern Dance <3

I came across photographer Christopher Peddecord sometime last year and I fell in love with a series of his Black and White Photographs titled "Aloft: The New Dance Project" ... A bit about Christopher Peddecord: Coming from a Dancing/Choreography Background, Peddecord decided to take on photography — concentrating on the Movement of Dancers for a few projects. "I’ve never been merely content to simply pose a dancer and leave things be. A pose is static and dance is anything but. Dance is at its core an expression of time, space, and energy. Still-photography takes away the element of time which makes a dancer, despite their specific intent, look inert," says Peddecord (about his photography on his website.) His Goal is to create movement that forces the photograph to have the illusion of a before and an after, giving the still frame life and movement. Below, some Photographs from the Series:    "In a world borne of the artificial, Aloft expresses the beauty of dance in elegant simplicity. Absent of any gimmicks, the photographs are purposely bare save for the line, the shape, the dance and most importantly the dancer."      — Christopher Peddecord about his Aloft: The New Dance Project Photographs I absolutely Love this Photo! I absolutely love how Christopher Peddecord has captured a split-second of a dancers movement on camera. If you are Q-rious to view the rest of the photographs in this Series, click here.
