It is a dance class that seeks to express an idea, a feeling, an emotion. In this type of dance, the movements are synchronized with the head trying to communicate a message. Contemporary dance can talk about a concept, propose an environment or present movements in order to achieve a certain aesthetic through body movements, it does not necessarily have to tell a story.
