SCB Company & Level H Contemporary
Contemporary is a genre of dance that incorporates elements of both classical ballet and modern dance. Contemporary ballet represents a departure from the restraints of traditional classical ballet techniques and traditional rules of composition. Contemporary by definition means happening or existing at the same time and is often used to describe works that are created in the present or recent past. These works tend to reflect the moods, ideas, events, and feelings of the time of their creation and do not always have specific stories or librettos. Contemporary choreographers sometimes infuse their choreography with these themes and ask the audience to think more deeply about the meaning of the work instead of telling them what to think and how to interpret it.
