Modern Dance

The form of dance style known as "modern dance" is an artistic dance form that allows free movement based on choreography that seeks to provide the audience with a subject and theme. Modern dance performers created this free form style to allow older dancers to continue to dance long after their ballet dance careers ended. Loie Fuller, Isadora Duncan and Eleanor Anderson first performed modern dance publicly by the 1880s. These are the first modern dancers who paved the way for uninhibited freedom in dance. The point of modern dance is to allow the audience to see the "story" modern dancers create.
