Contempory dance has a growing relationship with Alt Circus.
The beautiful forms of dance movement can transfer from the ground into the air.
Contemporary dance also has a rich culture of emotive essence which lends a new depth to theatrical circus performance.
Variations on the form
- Fuse Circus uses contemporary dance pieces as distinct acts in the Heavenly Burlesque shows. These performances provide a strong contrast to the comedy and circus aspects of the show.
- Footnote Dance Company has worked with Fuse Circus integrating contemporary dance and circus skills in Footnote Fused performed as an opener to the 200 season of Gravity and Other Myths.
- The very first Fuse show Plunge also used contemporary dancers to perform aerials.
Contemporary dance usually requires a flat, firm floor area, and enough ceiling height to clear the moves your dancers plan to make. A raised stage is ideal, so that the full effect can be seen by all.
