Pavlova and Duncan were prominent figures in the world of dance during the early 20th century, but their approaches to dance and their styles were quite different.
Anna Pavlova, a Russian ballerina, was known for her classical ballet performances, for her technical skill, and she is often credited with popularizing ballet around the world.
Isadora Duncan, on the other hand, was an American dancer and choreographer who is considered one of the pioneers of modern dance.
Both defied the conventions of traditional ballet performance and had considerable international followings.
