Contemporary Dance builds on the technique of many art-forms including Modern and Classical Ballet. Opposed to traditional ballet, contemporary dance moves from the air to the floor allows deviation of conventional structure.
Modern Dance originated as a rebellion from ballet. Where ballet is lifted and flowing, modern technique is more grounded, engaging the whole body in dramatic expression. At DDC&G, Modern is offered in order to expose dancers to different movement forms and encourage creativity and expression in each student’s individual style.
