Types of modern dance - school Todes

Modern dance is a popular type of choreography that combines stage and street styles. They attract people of all ages and allow maximum creativity. Below we will tell you what types of modern dances exist, how they differ and who are suitable for.

Variety dance

Variety is a staged stage dance, which can combine movements from different styles, including classical choreography, folk and historical and everyday dances. Such a dance is based on the principles of dramaturgy, and implies the presence of a plot (starting, climax, finale). It is a spectacular musical and choreographic miniature with elements:

  • acting;
  • acrobatics;
  • pantomimes;
  • improvisations.

The development of pop dance was initiated by gypsy choirs, who turned their performances into original mini-performances. Gradually, pop dance turned into a separate genre, and the dance numbers created within its framework began to resemble shows due to the ability to keep the viewer's attention, surprising with unusual choreographic solutions, trick elements, and complex movements. Today, the most popular variety of pop dance are small forms.

Contemporary dance

The range of modern dances is unusually wide, which allows anyone who wants to learn to dance to find their own style. The main thing is to decide what you like best: stage dance improvisations, club dances or street battles.

Modern dance

The emergence of Art Nouveau was initiated by the famous dancer Isadora Duncan, who dreamed of creating a style opposite to classical ballet. She believed that in addition to aesthetic pleasure, dance should give a powerful emotional charge, promote the disclosure of personality, give freedom to the body, soul, thoughts, and even shock. Classics, on the other hand, set too rigid limits, which I really wanted to go beyond. As a result, pointe shoes disappeared (modern dances are performed barefoot), spectacular jumps, acrobatic movements and beautiful falls appeared. At the same time, the broken lines of the arms and body as a whole still looked graceful, but new forms appeared, and the movements acquired an actual sound.


Contemporary is freedom of movement, improvisation, the ability to vividly and unusually express one's thoughts, emotions, experiences. The prototype of this style was Art Nouveau, symbolizing the departure from conventions. But the contempo went even longer: elements of yoga, pantomime, and martial arts successfully fit into the dance. A special flavor to the dance compositions was added by techniques built on balance, counterweight, muscle work, and made it possible to make the movements of the performers truly organic. The heyday of contemporary came in the 60s, but the style is constantly evolving, enriched with new techniques, with the help of which the body gets rid of clamps, complete liberation occurs, dancers acquire extraordinary lightness, and dance compositions - unique expressiveness. Contempo is danced barefoot, with maximum dedication, using natural movements and inertia of weight, with an emphasis on proper breathing, the work of muscles and ligaments. And the main principle of any choreographic composition of this direction is improvisation.

Jazz dance

Jazz dance is a fairly broad concept, covering all dance styles, the ancestor of which was swing. But all of them can be described as energetic, cheerful, emotional and dynamic. Until the 50s, this style was attributed exclusively to African dance and music culture, but as jazz spread, its perception changed. And the real evolution of style took place on Broadway, where jazz moved into a new, more plastic format, somewhat abstracting from tap dancing, and adding entertainment and catchy theatricality to its image. The most famous styles of jazz dance are boogie-woogie, rock and roll, lindy hop, which have not lost their relevance for many decades. But jazz techniques continue to evolve, and are often used in music videos and shows.


Created by Don Campbell, locking is not so much a dance as a performance, clearly tied to a musical accompaniment. This style is characterized by rhythmic and unusually expressive hand movements, which is why it is often associated with hip-hop. The dance got its name from the word "lock" (which means "castle"), due to the peculiarity of the performance of the elements, suggesting unexpected and instantaneous fading, which the audience immediately began to call locks. Locking appeared in the African American community in Los Angeles, was originally performed on the streets and had a socio-political overtones. But gradually the dance moved to clubs, and then spread throughout the world. Choreographers consider funk to be the best music for this dance direction. And as costumes, dancers choose mainly sportswear, and in European locking, knee-highs and striped sweaters, hats and white gloves are welcome.


Popping, which appeared in the 70s in California, owes its birth to another dance direction - locking. Visually, the performance of this dance resembles the top break, and they really have something in common. But the popping movements are based on the muscle contraction/relaxation technique, which gives a flinching effect (called a "pop" or "hit"). As a result, a kind of optical illusion is created, as if everything that happens on the stage is unreal, which attracts the audience. Popping is the perfect dance to express emotions, and this makes it very popular during battles. Performers, improvising, actively interact with the audience, imitate the movements of puppets, build geometric figures with the help of fingers, create a strobe effect in the dance. Initially, the dancers chose clothes in a conservative style for performances (jackets, shirts, dress shoes), complementing the look with a hat. But the tradition has not survived the test of time, and today poppers prefer to dress like most representatives of hip-hop culture.


This style originated in Jamaica in the 80s, when the enthralling and expressive reggae rhythm came into fashion. The dance quickly became popular, and gained so many fans that a special format was required for their communication. This is how dance camps appeared, which were analogues of large-scale festivals and promoted the dancehall culture. As part of such events, theme parties, master classes on teaching dancehall movements, battles that gathered a large number of spectators, and grandiose show programs were organized. Jamaican dance movements are sensual and seemingly relaxed, and the main focus is on the hips. They allow you to completely liberate yourself, demonstrate your sexuality and attractiveness, dissolving in the dance rhythm. This direction for adults combines a large number of dances, among which there are both romantic and dynamic ones. And many schools offer training not only in traditional Jamaican technique, but also in Dancehall Female, a female dance that allows you to develop the plasticity of movements and get rid of complexes.


Booty dance (twerking or twerk) is considered one of the most provocative dances because of the characteristic movements of the buttocks (and an indicator of high professionalism is the ability to actively move not two, but only one buttock!). In fact, he is a "shock", and extremely popular in Western clubs. The prototype of this trend is the ritual dances of the tribes living on the African continent. So it is not surprising that reggae and hip-hop are most often used as musical accompaniment for booty dance (although samba is also relevant). The hips and buttocks are mainly involved in the dance process, and the hands only enhance the impression and make the composition logically complete. Initially, twerk dance, which belongs to one of the dancehall branches and has a clear sexual connotation, was performed by men, but today women play the leading role in this style. This energetic dance is a great cardio workout and is often used in weight loss programs and fitness workouts. Regular dance classes in the twerk style allow you to adjust your figure, improve your physical shape, get rid of cellulite, psychological clamps and complexes.

Electro-dance (tectonik)

Tektonik refers to club dances, and is characterized by expressive hand movements, in which there are elements of locking, hip-hop, jumpstyle. The style includes several directions, which are conventionally divided into soft and heavy tectonics. For the first time they started talking about it in the early 2000s in Paris, they perform it to the heavy “electro”, and the name of the dance was given by the Tecktonik Killer festival. Electro-dance enthusiasts often opt for a gothic style of clothing, and wear unusual futuristic hairstyles, drawing the attention of others. And during performances, they wear skinny jeans, tight-fitting T-shirts with thematic drawings, basketball shoes and white belts. But this dance is so good that each person can bring something of his own to it. So among beginner performers of tectonics one can meet both people in shapeless overalls and charismatic dancers with a naked torso.


Breakdance is a product of youth hip-hop culture: expressive, dynamic, bright. It is divided into upper (demonstrates the plasticity of movements) and lower (considered power, performed on the floor, involves a large number of acrobatic and stunt elements). The first mention of this dance dates back to the late 60s, but as an independent style it took shape only in 1973. Initially, the break was exclusively a street dance - it was performed by young people from the African American and Puerto Rican communities of New York. But, quickly becoming popular, breakdancing moved to clubs, where battles and hip-hopper parties began to be held. It is considered one of the most spectacular street dances, performed to a broken break beat, allowing you to relax and show impressive physical abilities.

Vogue dance

Finely tuned spectacular movements and mesmerizing poses of models are the basis of the voguing dance style, although it appeared thanks to prisoners from Harlem, who simply parodied catwalk divas. But their jokes helped form one of the most fashionable choreographic trends, which is now an integral part of house culture. It is interesting that people who had nothing to do with fashion and who came from the lower social strata were fond of vogue. They organized the so-called vogue balls, where they "shone" on their own podium, feeling like real stars. A powerful impetus in the development of this dance was Madonna's video of the same name, after which voguing spread to Europe. Today, in the arsenal of vogue dancers, which is actually a choreographic performance, not only posing, but also quick hand movements with gracefully curved hands, mannered gait, beautiful falls and rotations. Dance is perfect for self-expression, and allows you to emphasize the bright individuality of the performer.

Strip plastic

Strip plasticity is an actual direction of modern dances, which is a complex of sensual movements with a touch of eroticism. And its characteristic feature is a mixture of different styles (classical, modern, jazz, oriental dances). Strip plastic classes allow not only to improve the aesthetics of the body and learn how to move sexually, but are also an excellent fitness training - while learning and practicing dance movements, everyone is loaded muscle groups. This means that you can not only learn how to present yourself beautifully, but also significantly improve your athletic shape, make your walk easier, and your figure elegant.

Finger Tutting

Talk about new types of dance would be incomplete without mentioning Finger Tutting. It is performed with the fingers, the movements of which imitate drawings and figures in the spirit of ancient Egyptian art (when performing dance movements, it is important to observe right angles with your fingers!). He gained fame in 2010, when the movie Step Up 3D was released, and is based on the ability to effectively gesticulate.

By mastering modern techniques, you will be able to effectively perform various types of dances in a club, impress friends at parties and improvise at home. And it is better to learn how to move beautifully to music in a dance school with a professional choreographer.

12 life hacks, to quickly learn how to dance from Mamita Dance

At the start, you always want to get a quick result. When it doesn't happen, the hypothesis arises that everything takes time. After a conditionally acceptable time, humility comes to mastering pair dances, which, perhaps, is not given, and I will just do what I learned somehow.

This is the most common story of those who believe that the mere act of attending a pair dance class is enough to learn how to dance.
Absolutely not. If you want to really dance well, you have to make an effort outside of the dance class. A good teacher will definitely be needed, but the initiative should be on your side.

1. Listen to music

The most common and accessible advice that is given already in the first lessons. And it definitely works. Music creates a certain atmosphere of the dance and intuitively you want to move to it. It doesn't matter where you listen to music - in the car, on headphones while walking or doing household chores.

An addition that will help you dance better is your active participation in the music. Sing along, dance or simply beat musical accents with any free parts of the body. In the subway, for example, it is enough to tap out bright moments with your fingers, in the car to sing along with sounds, and at home you can jump for pleasure.

2. Watch videos of good dancers

It's complicated, but also obvious. It’s more difficult, because without recommendations from more experienced dancers, unfortunately, it’s not so easy to find a good quality video on the net (I mean not the resolution quality, but the content itself).

Meaningful video viewing is about building an understanding of HOW dancers make a particular impression on a partner or viewer. Technology is at the heart of everything. Understanding how the pros do it is a big step forward.

It is important to distinguish a show from a disco dance, a staged performance from an improvisation, a stylized dance from an authentic one, etc. Ask for recommendations and dance teachers will always throw off a couple of videos of worthy landmarks.

3. Dance in salsatecas/milongas/discotheques

A very delicate moment when it is worth coming to the first party. From a technical point of view, most students in 1-3 months have a sufficient set of figures and techniques to come and dance calmly. Psychologically, the same moment can be stretched out for an indefinite time. After all, it is imperative to “not lose face”, “learn more figures” and be sure what to do in case “there is an unfamiliar movement”.

In fact, the partygoers don't really care (except for a small layer of non-professional teachers who want to help inexperienced dancers by treating them as customers in the future). It is important to come and try dancing after a month of classes. You can only with friends or guys from your group. This will be enough to feel the adrenaline and inspiration from the dance.

4. Dance with partners or partners not of your level

The conventional wisdom that you need to practice in groups of your level does not stand up to the test of experience. Perhaps now your eyes widened in surprise, and you want to meaningfully read the phrase again. Yes, you saw everything correctly: when you dance with a partner of your level, you don’t grow anywhere.

It's important to understand that not only does it work one way and you have to dance with cooler dancers, but it works even more effectively the other way. It is no coincidence that teaching pair dances dramatically raises the level of the teacher himself. You have an endless stream of very beginner dancers.

How it works. A more experienced partner needs to be "stretched". It's easy and obvious. With beginners, you need to take more initiative on yourself, see the general pattern of the dance more widely, turn on and insure more, try to be an example and be more careful. The quality of interaction begins to grow significantly. And wonderful partners too.

Dancing with partners of your level doesn't make you grow. Dance with both beginners and more advanced dancers

5. Learn to dance for a partner and for a partner

Turks and Argentines are one of the best partners in the world. In Russia, partners are highly valued. Why? The answer is simple. In Argentina and Turkey, it is not questionable for men to ask another man to lead in one piece or another and give feedback on the quality of the lead. For them, it will be a great shame to hear moralizing from a partner, or even more so to be known in the community as an insecure partner.

In Russia, due to the constant, often far-fetched, opinion that there are more women in pair dances, partners calmly get up and study their partner's part. Such partners then grow into very cool dancers and teachers. In no case do this at parties, only in class. Here we are talking only about the learning strategy. At parties, be yourself.

6. Do not memorize links

Always try to look deeper and understand the through principle and idea of ​​movement. Understanding what and how is done will make it possible to independently generate any sequences and chips.

Human memory is limited and there will always be a moment when something will escape and your repertoire will be limited by the size of RAM.

In Argentine tango, for example, there are seven levels of movement construction that, when mastered, will allow you to make millions of combinations. And how many dance sequences can you really remember? In rueda, more than 150 figures dance in a rare circle. It's hard to keep more in mind.

7. Develop your body

Many years of experience in teaching pair dance shows that as soon as everyone pairs up in a class, any progress in individual style ends. But it is the individual style that distinguishes everyone at the disco: partners change, and style is always with you.

The body as the main instrument of dance must be very plastic, responsive and emotional. Surprisingly, not all pair dance schools have a general physical warm-up. It is vital to tune the body and understand how it works.

You can always train extra and concentrate more on the basic steps, as their true value is as body work. The sequence of steps is, in fact, the simplest thing that can be in pair dancing. The quality of individual performance determines the craftsmanship.

8. Try on the images of inspiring dancers

A psychological life hack for those who have already mastered the steps, but still feel that there is not enough brightness and drive. Most are terribly afraid of being someone else's "clone". Here the action is the same as under the influence of hypnosis - the more you resist, the more you plunge into an altered state of consciousness.

With a high degree of probability, you are already dancing like someone else's "clone". A meaningful fitting of someone else's image is that you mentally take the image of the one who inspires you (inspiration is critical in this case) and "put on" yourself. Then you start dancing and trying to feel in general how it is to be able, for example, to be the best partner or the sexiest partner in a disco. This is much more difficult than it seems. But it works extremely efficiently.

9. Dance to offbeat music

Habitual rhythms keep you tight. Tango salon or speedy timba leave little room for experimentation and fantasy. Pattern dancing is always noticeable and is reserved for beginners.

The truly new is born outside of the usual. Look for places to experiment. If there is no place, organize self-training. The main thing is not to get carried away, because music determines the style. We bring something new to pair dances, rather than trying to change them.

Search, improvise, don't be afraid to go beyond, develop in different directions, be inspired by music atypical for the style

10. Try your hand at basic dance directions

dances exist according to their own non-choreographic laws.

This is the deepest delusion, which has turned into a ceiling for the qualitative development of partner dances. After all, all professional dancers, for example, in salsa or bachata, build their ideas on the basic choreographic principles.

Do not think that choreography is only applicable on stage. Any meaningful movement of the body can be choreographic. In general, try classical or modern choreography. Basically, hip-hop can work too.

11. Look for battle sensations

Pair dances return us to an active position of manifestation of our body. As in the days of our ancient ancestors, we impress the members of the opposite sex by how dexterous, hardy, sexy, etc. we are. Modern laws of the jungle in the entourage of large cities.

If you look around the dance floor, it becomes clear that the majority are clearly herbivores (not in the sense of vegetarians, but in relation to those around them). I am sure that predators are always more interesting in terms of the attractiveness of the image - try to find a counterbalance among herbivores, for example, a cat woman or a lion man.

The conversation is about an internal position, not about aggressiveness. Lability and lack of control are inherent in adolescents, and not in adult self-sufficient people.

Accordingly, even a training or friendly battle gives, on the one hand, practical skills - to make a bright sequence of movements, bring an idea to a climax, show a spectacular feature, on the other hand, develops the psychological basis of the dance - self-confidence, resistance to extraneous attention, self-control and self-control in complex elements.

12. Communicate with professionals

The environment shapes the internal position. Basically, real passionaries of the dance community are ready to openly talk, discuss and support the development of dance in every possible way. Universal principles and the ideas they articulate have a much longer and more practical perspective than meets the eye.

Accept that, for example, behind the words "listen to your partner" is not only a beautiful metaphor, but also a practical skill to literally listen to your partner. At the same time, always treat every thought, even the most respected teacher, as a private opinion.

Your skill will lie in finding the scope of the idea even in conflicting opinions. Most often, the contradiction is speculative and the truth lies in the angle of perception or situationality.

Your dancing growth will stop sooner or later. This can happen at the level of three basic steps or years of experience in teaching and show performances.
