Contemporary dance pushes the boundaries. Early innovators developed a unique movement vocabulary that has been expanded and abstracted by Contemporary dance companies worldwide. Examples of Contemporary Dance companies in Australia are Chunky Move, Balletlab, ADT, Sydney Dance Company and Bangarra Dance Theatre.
Contemporary dance is highly technical; requiring alignment, balance, coordination, control, flexibility, strength and stamina. It can be choreographed either against or with the music; it can follow conventional rules or be completely ground-breaking.
Dancentre teachers devise open Contemporary dance classes that challenge and inspire our dance students.
