Contemporary dance: Contemporary dance arose as a reaction against stylized positions and movements of classic dance, becoming different from its strict standards, traditional and romantic, and any code and academic rule. It was spread after the World War I and has been developing an important function: communication.

In contemporary dance body dynamics are provided by people’s own energy, so that every movement measures each part of the body. Space has been used as a natural way of expression, by each and every movement and its dynamics.

It may be performed not only in a vertical position. It is so rich and diverse that several positions and levels can be carried out. The way it occurs is always an example of simplicity and elegance.
