Contemporary dance is a compilation of different styles of dance, including lyrical, classical ballet, jazz and modern dance.

Like modern dance, improvisation is an important skill in contemporary. “We are headed to a place that we haven’t seen yet” in contemporary dance, Desmond Richardson says. “I want to keep it like that- keep it open, keep it limitless.”

For the intermediate/advanced student.

“There comes a moment in a young artist’s life when he knows he has to bring something to the stage from within himself. He has to put in something in order to be able to take something out.”

— Mikhail Baryshnikov
