Strength, Breath, Fluidity, and Release

Contemporary dance is a genre of dance performance that developed during the mid-twentieth century. Since that, the contemporary dance style has grown to become one of the dominant genres for formally trained dancers throughout the world, especially in North America and Europe. Contemporary dance is a style that combines elements of several dance genres including modern, jazz, lyrical and classical ballet.

Contemporary dance tends to combine the strong but controlled legwork of ballet with modern style. There is also floor work, fall and recovery, and improvisation characteristics of modern dance.

Contemporary dancers strive to connect the mind and the body through fluid dance movements that incorporate beauty and grace. Contemporary dance is something more, which is difficult to explain, but definitely, this kind of dance style doesn’t fit in one definition.

This class is suitable for dancers with at least 2-3 sessions of Contemporary Beginner.
