Contemporary Dance (DFAA)

contemporary dance

Contemporary dance is the name given to a group of 20th century concert dance forms. It is a collection of systems and methods developed from Modern and Postmodern dance. Thus contemporary dance is not a specific dance technique and contemporary dance differ from each other in a number of ways.

Rather than emphasizing technique, which is seen more as a tool for the dancer and a means by which to strengthen the body, increase flexibility, and through a deliberate exposure of the contemporary dancer to a wide range of techniques to ensure versatility, contemporary dance as a field is more concerned with examining the choreographic and performing process.

Contemporary dance draws on modern dance techniques and an array of still developing philosophies of movement based on study of the human body and body/mind inter-relationships.
