Isadora wannabes

I would much appreciate if someone could illuminate me as to why exactly women did this nonsense. Was it a fad of the time? (and are these women actually members of an esteemed ballet corps who STILL did these silly poses and sillier outfits?) All I can think of is those Grecian urn gals in our high school play "Music Man"!

Weirdest scrum ever!

I think I've been watching too much sports when it looks like the woman in the center is holding a rugby ball over her head.
