About The Experience Trip
Contemporary dance consists of elements of jazz, ballet, lyrical and modern genres that developed during the mid-twentieth century. Borrowing from the different styles, contemporary dance connects one to the other through shared technique and variations of dance vocabulary. Applying movement of contract-release, floor work, fall and recovery, and improvisation, contemporary opens up to the unpredictability, rhythm and blocking change, and musicality (speed and direction) of the beat. Some styles incorporate elements of traditional dances, such as Asian and African aspects of finger, abdomen and hip movements.
