What you'll learn in this contemporary dance class:

Contemporary dance emerged in the 1950s as the dance form that is combining the modern dance elements and the classical ballet elements. It can use elements from non-western dance cultures, such as African dancing with bent knees as a characteristic trait, and Butoh, Japanese contemporary dancing that developed in the 1950s.

Contemporary dance evolved from combining ballet with traditional, fluid modern dance styles, but updating its execution by using more accessible songs, ballads, and known instrumental compositions.
