Contemporary dance is a dance expression that combines elements of many dance genres such as jazz, modern jazz, lyrical and classical. Contemporary dancers try to connect their minds and bodies to each dance.

Contemporary dance emphasizes flexibility, flexibility, improvisation in each dance rather than the strict or structured nature of ballet. While dancing, contemporary dancers focus on the floor, using force to coordinate movements in the most natural way. This type of dance is often danced with bare feet. Contemporary dance can be performed using many different musical styles.

Early pioneers of contemporary dance include: Isadora Duncan, Martha Graham and Merce Cunningham. Contemporary dancers believe they have the right to move freely, allowing their bodies to express their emotions in each dance.

What is special about this art is that contemporary dancers can come from different backgrounds such as classical ballet, folk dance to dance forms like hip hop or break dance or can come from yoga or modern dance. Contemporary style emphasizes the union of body and mind. Because of the special features of this subject, it has attracted many young people to  study contemporary dance  to show their passion and express their personality through dance steps.

Below, we will introduce you to the parts learned in the basic contemporary dance course  :

First:  Relax – Focus and imagine. For contemporary dance, relaxation is an important and indispensable part for the following reasons:

Psychologically: Relaxation helps the practitioner to be mentally comfortable in learning and absorbing the movements during practice more effectively.

Technically: Relaxation allows the dancer to optimize the use of his energy, softening the muscles, creating a sense of smoothness in contemporary dance styles.

Imagination is an important characteristic of modern dance. Imagination is the focus on perceiving the body and translating imaginary images into bodily movements.
