The History of Modern Dance
What we know and refer to as “modern dance” today actually began to take shape back in the early 1900s. As both American and European dancers grew tired of the strict formal training Classical Ballet is well known for, they started rebelling through a freer, more relaxed style of dance. This free style of dancing focused less on the traditional and rigid techniques of ballet and more on self-expression, both through movement and costume. Foregoing rigid ballet shoes and dress codes, the creators of modern dance truly danced to “the beat of their own drum” by coming up with their own dance designs rather than relying on the structured code of steps provided by classical ballet.
Where ballet is light and airy in style, modern dance strives to utilize gravity in every movement, as well as emotion, mood, stage and freedom of movement to create a beautiful and unique style of dance in a category all its own.
