A Brief History of Contemporary Dance
Historically analyzing, the mid twentieth century witnessed the informidable rise of this new genre in dance. It was there to stay. And it was not only there to stay alone, but also go on steadily rising in its popularity and recognition.
This new dance form had originally borrowed its elements from modern dance, classical ballet and jazz. But later it incorporated many other elements from many other genres of dance. Today it stands independently on its own with adding new creative developments to it ceaselessly.
It was this flexibility of being open to incorporate everything effective from any genre worldwide that worked for it. In fact it turned contemporary dance the richest of all other styles contending along. Therefore today it proudly displays its heredity adopted in its strong yet controlled legwork from classical ballet; in its torso movement, contract-release, floorwork, fall & recovery, sudden rhythmic changes affecting speed as well as direction and improvisations from modern dance; in its bent knees from African dance; and in its many other movements from Japanese dance named Butoh.
From Modern Dance to Postmodern to Contemporary
In the postmodern dance era as a pre-curser to contemporary, Merce Cunningham came up with his ‘Merce Cunningham Dance Company’ in 1953. He produced more than 150 choreographies that largely affected the making of the contemporary genre throughout the world.
Later, other pioneers of contemporary dance namely Ruth St. Denis, Émile Jaques-Dalcroze, Paul Taylor, Doris Humphrey, Rudolph von Laban, Mary Wigman, Francois Delsarte, Loie Fuller, Jose Limon and Marie Rambert further enriched the contemporary scenario.
Embracing Non-dance Disciplines
Owing to its flexible approach, it has even embraced non-dance disciplines strengthening its movements. These are Pilates, yoga, Alexander technique, Feldenkrais Method, Sullivan Technique, Franklin-Methode, Contact improvisation, Cunningham technique, and Release technique.
