Choi Seung-hee. Korea’s dancing legend

dance.icon.koreaChoi Seung-hee (1911 – 1969),  Korea‘s Legendary Dancer, can be considered the Oriental Isadora Duncan.  She was the first Korean to jump into the world of professional dancing, and a world-renowned dancer who performed in Japan, the U.S., Europe and South America. Her fans included big names like Picasso, Jean Cocteau, Chaplin and Hemingway.

 

 

Having led a passionate life as a dancer, she remains a legend in Korea, after more than 100 years after her death.
