A free, expressive style of dancing, modern dance, sometimes known as theatrical dance, started in the early 20th century as a reaction to classical ballet. Often defined as a contrast to ballet, modern dance centers on movement initiated from the center of the body and exploration with curvatures of the spine, with more angular movements than curvature, and manipulation of body weight. During this dance, we will cover the basic concepts of modern dance as we learn to control each part of the spine, shift weight, and work through combinations across the floor.
