Contemporary dance is a compilation of different styles of dance, including lyrical, classical ballet, jazz and modern dance.
Like modern dance, improvisation is an important skill in contemporary. “We are headed to a place that we haven’t seen yet” in contemporary dance, Desmond Richardson says. “I want to keep it like that- keep it open, keep it limitless.”
For the intermediate/advanced student.
“I do not try to dance better than anyone else. I only try to to dance better than myself.”
