Contemporary

Contemporary evolved out of Ballet, and it maintains the beauty and rhythmic characteristics that define it, yet it is not confined within the bounds of classical movement. It is unique as it incorporates elements of Ballet, Jazz and Modern Dance to give it a feeling all its own. It is a more poetic way of moving, which evolved as dancers found the need to break away from the rigidity of Classical Ballet and express themselves using a freer style. Contemporary Dance is characterized by telling a story using the dance and the words of a song to express a feeling. Students are taught to express a range of emotions with their bodies, faces and various dance styles.
