Contemporary Dance is a genre of expressive movement originally informed by and borrowing from classical, modern, and jazz styles. It has, since its inception in the 1940’s, become one of the most popular forms of dance to date. It incorporates elements from many styles of dance including Afro-Caribbean Japanese forms such as Butoh (categorized as a post- World War II genre created to depict slow, somber movements dedicated to honor the fallen).
Contemporary dance is said to be the offspring of modern and post-modern dance styles. It incorporates not only fundamental ballet techniques with the leg and foot movements, but also Modern dance’s emphasis on the torso.
Performers and beginner dance students alike appreciate the extreme creativity and diversity offered by Contemporary Dance.
