Modern dance as a concept, comes from the breakdown of the academic system imposed by the classical technique. In the early days of modern dance, its followers had no other idea in mind, beyond its own release, initiated through its various experiments.
Contemporary dance emerged in the late 1960, as a form of protest or break with classical culture. After a period of intense innovation and experimentation, that often bordered on complete deconstruction of art, finally – in the early 1980 – Contemporary dance began by defining, developing its own language, although sometimes reference to classical ballet.
More than a specific technique, Contemporary dance is a collection of systems and methods developed from modern dance and postmodern. The development of contemporary dance was parallel, but the development of separate New England Dance. Distinctions can be made between the contemporary American dance, Canadian and European.
Contemporary dance is not defined in specific movements or techniques, because the performer / dancer wins autonomy to build their own choreographies from research methods and procedures as: improvisation, contact – improvisation, Laban method, Technical release, Body Mind Centery (BMC), Alvin Nikolai. These methods bring instruments to the interpreter to create their compositions from issues related to policy issues, social, cultural, autobiographical, behavioral and everyday, as well as the anatomy and physiology of the body. Allied to this, saw the need for a theoretical research practice complement.
The Academy Annarella works with some of these techniques, adapting to the needs and interests of the globalized world.
