It appears as a revolutionary dance idea in contrast to the strict principals of ballet dance. Pioneers of Contemporary dance are Isadora Duncan, Martha Graham, Merce Cunningham, José Limón.
This dance style focuses more emotional and physical expression. There are different contemporary styles such as Cunningham technique, Graham technique, Limón technique, release technique. The students will learn how to use gravity as a very important tool to move around the space, they will be guided to build strength, confidence and strong knowledge of this style.
