What is Modern Dance?
Modern dance is an expressive style of dance created in the early 20th century that moved away from the structure of classical ballet technique. Modern dance is an integration of technique, floor work, dynamic, athletic, and abstract movement. Modern dance is constantly evolving and growing with the contemporary movement of today while staying true to the technique created by the pioneers of modern dance.
