    Modern dance is different because it is basically a mix between jazz style dancing and ballet. It helps you become more flexible and ties in different steps from jazz, ballet, and not to mention it has many of its own very creative steps while Folk dance is a traditional dance originating among the common people of a nation or region.

    Sa panahon kasi ngayon, puwede ng paghaluin ang dalawang sayaw na iyan. Puwedeng ang modern dance haluan mo ng folk dance steps.

    There are many similarities and differences between ballet, folk and modern dance. All three are physical expressions of creativity and an art form being practiced and performed today. In many ways, the three categories of dance can intersect and correlate as well. This can be seen in modern ballet which takes both elements of classical ballet with contemporary themes or folk dances with the same symmetrical lines and repetition as ballet. An example of this can be seen in many modern ballet companies such as the Eifman ballet company who recently took a very classic novel and choregraphed a ballet with modern themes such as minimalism and sexuality.

    However, there are also many differences between ballet, folk and modern dance due to the broad categories and types of dance and interpretation that can occur. Ballet has been honed through centuries of study and practice and Classical ballet carries themes of poise and discipline (“History and terminology,” 2012). Therefore, ballet has physical requirements as well as classical themes. Folk dance on the other hand is a free expression of the self that is found thematically in different cultures. This means that there are less rigid physical requirements and is geared towards the common person or anyone who wants to dance. Modern dance, on the other hand, focuses on contemporary and modern themes and is different from ballet in its variance on structure, physical requirements as well as ways it is interpreted.
    Line and form in modern dance differ dramatically from ballet. Modern dance emphasizes the use of line and form in expression instead of as structure. An example of this is seen in the work of Martha Graham who uses sharp and jagged movements instead of long and fluid movements. While there may be some repetition in modern dance, many dancers focus on developing new styles and steps throughout their routine.
