This epoch of contemporary dance is now called Modern Dance and has little to do with contemporary dance today. Basically, everything that is currently shown on the stages belongs to contemporary dance. Therefore the spectrum is very large. In Contemporary there are many different styles. In dance classes you move on the ground, standing and sometimes also in the air.
