Contemporary is another word for “modern” or “current”. If something is contemporary, it belongs in the here and now, the current time period. Contemporary dance is therefore always changing with the times and developing, and takes its inspiration from many different modern forms of dance.
Ballet – Vaganova method
The Vaganova method is a ballet technique and training system devised by the Russian dancer and pedagogue Agrippina Vaganova (1879–1951). It was derived from the teachings of the Premier Maitre de Ballet, Marius Petipa, throughout the late 19th century. It was Agrippa Vaganova who perfected and cultivated this form of teaching classical ballet and turned it into a viable syllabus.
