What is Contemporary dance and Modern dance?

You may wonder what is the difference between all the different styles of dance.
Well before Contemporary dance and Modern dance there was Ballet but later on there were ballerinas that wanted a style of dance that broke away from the rigid structure of ballet. That is where Modern dance and Contemporary came along.

The modern dance styles does not have set rules. Modern dancers often create their own dance routines using their emotions and moods, but on the other hand, many performances are choreographed.

Modern dancers prefer a more relaxed and free style of dancing. While ballerinas try to be light on their feet, modern dancers use body weight to increase movement.

Contemporary dance is a style of expressive dance that combines elements of several dance genres including modern, jazz, lyrical and classical ballet. Contemporary dancers strive to connect the mind and the body through fluid dance movements. The term “contemporary” is somewhat misleading: it describes a genre that developed during the mid-20th century and is still very popular today.

Contemporary dance stresses versatility and improvisation, unlike the strict, structured nature of ballet. Contemporary dancers focus on floorwork, using gravity to pull them down to the floor. This dance genre is often done in bare feet. Contemporary dance can be performed to many different styles of music.

These styles of dance can be seen in music videos today.
