Annabelle Moore – Serpentine Dance (1894, Edison)

Annabelle Moore, silent film actress and dancer, was the original Gibson Girl in the Ziegfeld Follies. She made several films for Edison and Biograph.

A follower of Loie Fuller, Ms Moore dances in true Fuller style. Her films were often hand colored, enjoying such popularity that many became so worn they had to be re-done.

If you enjoy early film dance and the beginnings of modern dance, please like then share this with others.
