Dance show

Contemporary dance is like a dance that happens right now, combining different dance styles and always coming up with new moves. Choreographers and dancers might use floor movements, falling and recovering, making up moves on the spot, new types of music, and even art. Some may even add things from totally different activities, like martial arts. It’s all about mixing it up and trying new things!
