Yeah, many ballet maniacs only refer to modern dance as the easier and less good dance
What the heck is modern dance???

Hi balletgurl. I found your comments very informational and I have learned a lot from it. I would just like to say that it is completely impossible to define or say what 'modern dance' is. The reason for this is in the name 'modern', which basically means what is new and happening at the time. Therefore modern dance is an evolutionary phase and is constantly changing every minute of every day. You can easily see where the evolution started with the likes of Martha Graham and Ruth St. Denis, but all that we can do now is help move things along by changing modern dance with individual skills that each of us possess. Hope you agree. x x x
Thanks

thanks that was really helpful, I had no Idea that was what modern dance was all about. But I still have one question to ask, do you know of any places that I can learn it in los angeles for free?

Thank you so much for that article! This is my first year in dancing modern and I am falling more and more in love with it each week! It was very intimidating at first but after the first semester, I find it very appealing and lovely. I'm so glad that it was created because it's as superior as ballet!
In total agreement

I totally agree with you. I get really tired of trying to explain to people what modern dance is-

I'm in IB Dance at my school, where our goals include choreography (among others) and we had a discussion about what modern is. The best way we came up with to explain it without giving the whole history was "an accumulation and re-invention of every other type of dance" and though I know it doesnt give the term all it deserves, it's the best way for us to explain it to people who go What is that you're doing? WHAT!? or "That's not DANCE!"

Wow! That's absolutely amazing! I find that it looks rather free flowing, because the dancers are usually just so great and technically correct, but when you actually have to dance it you have to control your body so much as if you are actually doing ballet.

I've been taking modern dance for three years, and I hardly knew any of those facts. I really learned a lot, I wish classes would give you a bit of dance history! Thanks for the article!

Thanks so much for taking the time to write all that. I knew what modern was, but i never realized how much work it was. I always thought it was just "being free" or whatever. Thanks!
