Both Loïe Fuller and Isadora Duncan paved the way for Modern Dance in America. Bringing new and individual elements, breaking previous stylistic restrictions, and changing the look of dance in America at the turn of the 20th century, these two women are considered the forerunners of American Modern Dance. With their free and natural movements, and as well as their dance clothing, they were also able to liberate the female form from standards previously faced by all women.
