Second rule? Get those shoes off and get ready to express yourself!
Modern dance emerged in the late 19th and early 20th centuries as a rejection of social strictures and ballet tradition performed in theatrical and concert settings. Modern dance strives to portray in movements what the composer of a musical piece expresses in their compositions. It is more easily defined by what it is not, than by what it is – utilizing the controlled legwork of ballet, use of the torso, floor work, and strong improvisation.
