Contemporary dancers strive to connect the mind and the body through fluid dance movements.
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.
Pioneers of contemporary dance include Isadora Duncan, Martha Graham, and Merce Cunningham.
These contemporary dancers all believed that dancers should have freedom of movement, allowing their bodies to freely express their innermost feelings.
