Contemporary Dance Mention

There are many contributions of choreographic art of the XNUMXth and XNUMXst centuries to the conception of a new way of understanding dance: Contemporary Dance.

Contemporary Dance is freedom of creation, but within technical parameters, languages ​​and discourses that base its creative and training process, and its various scenic particularities.

Contemporary dance adds several techniques, stylistic currents and forms of training in its development process. Currently there are methodological currents such as the Graham technique, the Horton technique or improvisation techniques that have their own definition and cover very different forms of expression, style and training.
