Contemporary Dance describes a range of techniques and styles used in classes, workshops and dance choreography. Contemporary dance was developed in the 1950s century
as a reaction against the rigid techniques of ballet. Pioneers such as Isadora Duncan and Martha Graham searched for ease of movement using the body's natural lines and energy,
allowing a greater range and fluidity of movement than conventional dance techniques.
Contemporary dance is characterised by its versatility: contemporary can be danced to almost any style of music, or united with other dance forms to create new styles
of movement. Contemporary seeks to work with the natural alignment of the body, and is therefore safe and accessible for beginners.
At the same time, the ease of movement promoted by contemporary dance technique allows experienced dancers to push new boundaries of body movement.The four main contemporary styles are
Cunningham , Graham , Limon and Release. Our contemporary dance classes in Birmingham not only focus on techincal ability but is also great fun
