Contemporart Dance Classes in Victoria

Contemporary dance (sometimes called 'modern') is a style developed from the work of Martha Graham and later developments of her students in the early 20th century originally using some ballet technique but using bare feet and use of the floor as well. This evolving form uses the principles of gravity, moving from the core of the body, use of relaxation and transfer of weight, dynamics and control and isolations. Today, contemporary has a variety of styles from the more lyrical to the percussive and tribal.
