MODERN DANCE, THE HISTORY OF MODERN DANCE, MODERN DANCE COMPANIES
Learn about modern dance and the history of modern dance. Find local modern dance companies.

Modern dance is a expressionist style of dancing. Like jazz dance and other intepretive dance styles, it focuses on creative self-expression.  The history of modern dancen goes back to the early 1900’s as a rebellion against the  strict techniques of classical dance training like ballet. The choreography of modern dances emphasizes creativity and originality, making modern dance performances one-of-a-kind interpretations.  Modern dance  is a more relaxed, free style of dance in which choreographers use emotions and moods to design their own dance steps, in contrast to a structured code of dance steps found in ballet. In the history of modern dance, dance techniques had a more precise use of gravity, but today modern dance strives to be light and airy.

Modern dance can also be based on interpretations of stories, ancient myths, and current events. It is open to all interpretations. Either way, modern dance focuses on emotions as much as movement.  Because modern dance has no bounderies and covers many dance styles, such as ballet, jazz, freestyle and contemporary dance, it is very popular in concert and theatre performances and amateur talent competitions.
