LOVE modern much much better, but don't get me wrong because I do enjoy ballet as well..... Modern is just so much more flexible and emotional.
the concoction of both is astounding!

the freedom of ballet and the codified form is a mixture that will definitely create a belly churning and spine tingling experience.

I don't practice modern but i love just dancing it, Modern is so free and flowing. I don't really like to watch modern as much. Ballet on the other hand is so delicate, graceful and beautiful to watch. Dancing it on the other hand takes dedication, disaplin and strength.

I think that ballet and modern are both awesome but ballet is my fave i think that ballet and modern have different feels so they are both fun for different reasons. Ballet is my favourite but it is followed closely by modern. At first i would have said that i wouldnt know cause they are both real good for different things. But after i thought about it i realised that if i had to quite one it would be modern cause ballet is my life.
" one day you could ask me, Whats more important Dancing or my life. I will answer you truthfully and say My Life, and you will walk away without even realising that dancing is my life.

I enjoy both watching and performing ballet, but i always feel free more myself when i do modern or contemporary. I'm a very grounded person and i love rolling around and making up movements, where ballet is very pre-set. But i will always do a ballet class evey week.
So to answer the question, Modern/Contemporary is my favourite

I love ballet!! I like modern as a kind of break to express myself in a way I may not be able to in ballet. I like to have fun after a long week of heavy duty ballet training and it's good to get away sometimes. But who knows where I'll end up in a few years, right?

that's a tough question - I dated a ballerina and a modern dancer at almost the same time and thus i was present at many performances, etc. I uess I would say I defer to Ballet, only because the training and the moves are so pretty to watch. With modern it seems to be very free form - sometimes it's cool, real cool - Other times it looks very weird. So I go with ballet.

Ballet is my life. I love it the form, disipline, the everything about it. However, I have a new found respect for morden after a Graham summer intensive. So I guess I'm voting for, modern its more out there to explore with modern.

I love love love modern. I feel that ballet is a wonderful dance, and gives you a good base for other dance types, however, I don't think it is my strong point. I took to modern right away. I don't really know why, maybe the free feeling you have when yo dance it, but I LOVE it!

I like modern a lot. We usually don't have words in our modern songs, so it's kinda like the only guideline is the mood of the song, and you can shape the details however you want. I'm the kind of guy that doesn't like ballet at all. I'm grateful for it, but I don't like it.

they are both wonderful dances, ballet because it is so technical and graceful, and modern because it is so real and raw. when dancing both it feels like its everything to me and I never want to stop, its too difficult to pick one because they are both so wonderful.

I love the structure of ballet class. I love being in class and just striving for perfection. When it comes to performing, there is nothing more amazing that expressing yourself in a contemporary/lyrical piece. * I do not typically do the traditional Martha Gramm modern although I have been introduced to it before. Im new here and was just wondering if this is the type of modern you talk about or does modern simply mean anything besides ballet tap and jazz
