Contemporary dance was developed during the mid-twentieth century and is an expressive dance style that combines elements from several dance genres (mondern, jazz, lyrical and ballet). Contemporary focuses on combining artistry to the dancers' classical foundation while exploring movement through structured improvisational work. Unlike other genres of dance, contemporary has no syllabus and is currently still evolving.
