BIOGRAPHY

 

Ms. Pamela de Fina
Artist, dancer, choreographer, teacher, author.

 

My interest in the Isadora Duncan style of dance, originated in Florence, Italy, while I was studying  Art History at Villa Schifanoia, Grad. School of Fine Arts/Rosary College: particularly the sculpting and paintings of Michelangelo, and Botticelli., which Later, I found out that Isadora had also been deeply inspired by the same works of art, and created dances to these paintings. After leaving Florence, Italy for NYC, I returned to the Harkness House of Ballet , NYC. to continue the dance, which I had begun at 5 years old, until 16 years old, at Imperial Studios, and performed with many famous dancers at the Poinciana Playhouse in Palm Beach. There, I asked the Directors if we could celebrate Maria Theresa’s 84th Birthday Celebration there, and they consented. I was searching or the dance of Isadora Duncan, intuitively , as a form of artistic expression.. Destiny was beckoning, when I found Maria Theresa Duncan, who I was blessed to be chosen by her as protogee, and to know her  on a deep level, as a master teacher, and close friend. I learned her original technique of creating dances too. as the Funeral March and Presto, The Franz Liszts, Les Funerailles, The Bethoveen, 7th Sympony, Alegretto, and others. It was a rich experience, which integrated, the visual arts, classical music, philosophy, psychology and Greek mythology ,a complete artistic, expression. Both Isadora, and Maria Theresa were surrouned by devoted artists of all mediums, musicians, painters, sculptors, philosophers, poets, actors etc., so I was attracted to this style of dance because it integrated all the arts, as I had been married to a prominent artist, and was in close contact with artists, for many years. This is one of the reasons that Theresa chose me for the dance, and later after working so closely with her I was able to understand her technique, as she stated. Also, I had been an Elem Ed. Teacher, and studied child psychology. Isadora Duncans whole purpose was to teach children her great art in order to create a healthier, happier race.

Pamela De Fina began her dance career as a special protogee of Maria Theresa Duncan, and The Maria Theresa Heritage Group ,performing at the United Nations in NYC. In 1979.
