Modern Dance


How it all began

Modern dance is a broad genre of western concert dance, primarily arising out of both Germany and the United States in the late 19th and early 20th centuries. Modern dance is one of the only art forms that allow free expression and that is why it remains so well loved by many. The ability to free yourself while you dance is a quality that not many forms of dance poses. With modern dance, there are no boundaries; you simply dance through your feelings, which creates an extraordinary art form.

How it evolved

Modern dance, having begun as a reaction against ballet, is perhaps more easily defined by what it is not than by what it is, and it is often defined in contrast to ballet. Certain broad traits, however, can be observed in much of the enormously varied modern dance that has been created in the 20th century.
