Art & Culture
Developed in the 20th century, modern dance broke away from a
formal tradition to pioneer an experimental, free-form way of
moving across the stage.
Early proponents were
Fuller, and Ruth
St. Denis in the United States, and Rudolf
von Laban and Mary
Wigman in Germany.
Since then, the likes of
Ailey and Twyla
Tharp have contributed to what has become today a rich, varied
and growing school of modern and contemporary dance...
