Contemporary is a modern dance style that also borrows elements of many different styles of dance, including Classical, Modern, and Jazz. Contemporary Dance pieces also use the controlled legwork of Ballet with the improvisation and dramatic movements of modern dance.
Contemporary Dance was made popular by Merce Cunningham, who created a dance company in 1953 to house various modern styles.
Please note that Ballet is a prerequisite for Competitive Contemporary students.
