Question: What are some contemporary dance moves!?
I'm writing this short piece and the main character is a male contemporary!. What would be the name of some things he could be doing as he practicedWww@QuestionHome@Com

Best Answer - Chosen by Asker:
The issue is that contemporary dancers have less set movements than normal ballet!. Usually they take ballet movement and move more freely according to what they feel is beautiful!.

I suppose you could talk about the intensity and rawness of the movement!.

Some moves I suppose could be tilted battements, lunges, rond de jambes in plie, under curves, etc!. Things are done on tilts and with breath!. Arabesques are done with the body more parallel to the leg than at a 90 degree angle!.

Just talk about ballet moves!. The difference is generally the focus on the core and everything is turned out instead of in!.Www@QuestionHome@Com
