Contemporary dance is a type of artistic expression that is based on the technique of classical ballet but involves less rigidity of movement.
It arises as a reaction to classical forms and probably as a need to express oneself more freely with the body. Contemporary dance is recognized as a free current of dance.
Like classical ballet, the dancer expresses an idea, a feeling, an emotion, but with body movements of the twentieth and twenty-first century.
In this type of dance, the range of movement is expanded, the space is used in its full dimension, the relationship with gravity and the ground and the musicality is worked in different dynamics.
As its name indicates, it must be a contemporary dance and its main objective is a total expression of the body. It is a technique that is defined by the control of the laws of nature. Space, time, energy and gravity are fundamental elements.
This subject is oriented to students of intermediate and advanced levels of classical ballet.
The students of Spanish Dance participate in the end-of-course Festival organized annually by the Africa Guzman Ballet School, usually held in June.
