It began in Europe at the beginning of the 20th century. It was a rebellion against ballet, people saw it as too rigid and not artistic enough. It evolved in Central Europe and central Germany then diffused from there. Mary Wingman was a highly regarded modern dancer and choreographer in Central Europe. Isadora Duncan was an American dancer, she danced in modern and contemporary. Loie Fuller was a pioneer of both modern dance and that rifle lighting techniques. Our moves were a roll, pivot turn, tuck, leap, and 3 step turn. Our choreography included manipulation of time, manipulation of numbers and level changes. Our choreography could be described with the elements, bare like the earth, flows like the water and the awind, strong like the fire.
