People often wonder what contemporary dance is and what makes it different from modern dance. In contradistinction to the classical dance, which is more or less unequivocal - including neoclassical dance, the contemporary dance and the modern
dance are often ambiguous. Sometimes one is not even sure whether a dance performance can still be regarded as a dance.
In collaboration with students, Jarek Cemerek wants to present in a demonstrative way the contemporary dance, to expound its characteristics, main techniques and differences from the modern dance, as well as to explain the basic art movements of
contemporary dance and to demonstrate the elements that contemporary dance uses such as contact improvisation, release technique, improvisation, and performance art.
