Contemporary / Modern Dance


The need for exploring the limits of the human body and expression slowly formed the dance style that is known as Contemporary dance. It is the exploration of unconventional movements that were gathered from all dance styles of the world. Contemporary dances therefore do not use fixed moves and instead try and develop totally new forms and dynamics.
