Contemporary is a genre of performance dance that employs compositional philosophy, rather than choreography, to guide unchoreographed movement.

It uses techniques and methods found in ballet, modern dance and post-modern dance, and draws from other philosophies of movement beyond the realm of classical dance technique. Partner work and floor work are key focuses of contemporary dance, making it great for developing upper body strength.
