Contemporary dance is an expressive style that allows the dancers to use the mind and body to showcase a range of emotions. The focus on beautiful technique combined with the expressive nature lets the choreography and dancer tell a story. Contemporary can be done to pretty, slow songs, classical music or even spoken word.
