What is it?
Contemporary dance is a term encompassing a variety of techniques and styles closely related to ballet, modern dance, African and jazz dance. Early pioneers straying away from the classical ballet system include Mary Wigman, Isadora Duncan, Martha Graham and Merce Cunningham. Contemporary acknowledges the presence of the body in space, gravity in relation to the floor and detailed articulation of the spine. Movement qualities such as fall and suspension, release, rebound, flow can be enjoyed to a variety of music in this class comprising warm up technique exercises into dynamic sequences, which may jump and travel across the floor.
