This chapter continues the discussion of the career of dancer Maud Allan. In 1900, Maud turned to dancing as a means to gain attention, respect, and money, engaging in the new, emerging form of dance that came to be called modern dance, which was just beginning to find devotees. Her version of Salome became the first notable dance rendition independent of Wilde's play and Strauss's opera. Maud's ensuing fame rested entirely on this one twenty-minute dance.
