Contemporary

Contemporary Dance Defined

It’s easier to define contemporary by what it’s not: You won’t see tap or character shoes, costumes made of grass or bells strapped to ankles. But contemporary is still a bit abstract.

Contemporary on the Competition Circuit

At competitions and conventions, lyrical may be contemporary’s first cousin. Perhaps the only recognizable difference between the styles is the use of acrobatics in contemporary routines but not in lyrical.

Contemporary in the Ballet World

In the ballet world, choreographers have taken traditional ballet movements and dramatized them. In their pieces, the dancers’ arms are more extreme, fourth position is wider and performers are pushed off balance instead of staying directly on top of their legs.
