I don't know if someone else has already said this but isn't Ceder Lake a contemporary ballet company?

I had no idea what exactly contemporary ballet was, until this post. I might
try it sometime. *Marie* :D

Contemporary ballet is always so beautiful, I've tried multiple times to explain to people the difference between contemporary ballet, ballet and lyrical but I feel like you worded it very well. Thanks!

What would you call something that uses the looseness and expanded technique of Contemporary Ballet, but with the storytelling of classical ballet?

The storytelling/fairy tale element is really what draws me to ballet over other forms of dance, but I like the idea of having less strict rules and incorporating more modern dance.

here are several ballet companies that perform the classics in a new funky contemporary way. ovation tv aired Nutcracker every week during the 2012 holiday season and there was one in particular that was very creative and new. i would say any form of dance can tell a story. Ballet, modern, contemporary or hip hop. if you can check out some of those nutcrackers, even just to breeze through, you might find it interesting.

Yeah, that sounds like fun.

I can't really into full proper classical ballet but I still like the fairy tale element to it. Something that used more of the philosophy and technique of Contemporary with the story telling of classical would be perfect for me to get involved in. That's the sort of thing I hope to score some day, maybe dance in myself if I get to that level.

I hope to make the idea of an "Indie Ballerina" a thing, lol.

And, yes Cedar Lake IS a contemporary ballet company. One of the top contemporary companies in the country.

Can someone proffer Youtube clips illustrating the difference? I still don't understand.

I think you may be better served attending live performances in order tobest exoerience and learn to appreciate what's similar and wht's different between various idioms. Your 'understanding' will evolve. It can be partly an emotional response that is not conveyed well through the medium of video, some would assert.

Thanks for taking the time to create this description! I would also say that Jazz plays a big role in contemporary, at least in my area of the world (Maine).
