Duncan's early dance training seems to have been gymnastics lessons at the Oakland "Turnverein" (see Jahn) and the occasional ballet lesson. (Details)
Seeking more recognition, Duncan decided to give private dance performances in New York and Newport, and to give dance classes and lectures. (Details)
But early on, she rejected the rigidity of classical ballet and preferred more natural rhythms and movements. (Details)
