start around the two minute mark - Merce Cunningham and John Cage
dancers on parallel lines
"When you're doing something you want to, you may even not know how to do it, but you still want to do it so you go ahead and try." - Merce Cunningham

(Cunningham was known for bridging the gap between modern dance and ballet)

also do check out some of these, especially Loie Fuller's danse serpentine -
pretty incredible - you might also look at the videos of ruth st denis and ted shawn that pop up on the sides. interesting to think about in relation to the "exotic-ness"of Fran.
