'Catch-all term describing all new "art dance" which isn't ballet or so-called World dance (flamenco, tango, Cossacks, Bollywood, etc). In recent years it has tended to include a fusion of styles, such as Russell Malliphant's mix of capoeira and ballet, Akram Khan's East-West combinations, and Hofesh Shecter's splicing of religious ritual and combat fatigue. A ready-reckoner is the shoes: ballet dancers wear them, contemporary dancers generally prefer trainers, high heels or bare feet'
