Best Answer

Modern dance evolved from Ballet, jazz, hip hop, and many other forms of dance. Some contemporary dancers draw inspiration from ballroom dancing, others enjoy the elegance of ballet, while some enjoy the spontaneous movements of jazz and the wonderful stories they paint with their bodies of struggles, good times, and love.
