Modern dance has a profound influence on the exploration and practice of body aesthetics, which embodies the dancer’s personality and emotion in many ways, such as movement expression, music coordination, stage performance, emotional narrative, body language and improvisation. Through these ways, dancers can integrate their emotions and personalities into their dance performances, so that the audience can better understand and feel the artistic charm of dance. The value and significance of modern dance are also reflected in many aspects, such as free expression of emotions, innovation and exploration, better physical and mental health, greater aesthetic concepts, and wider social influence. As a unique art form, modern dance provides people with rich spiritual and cultural experience, which is worthy of our in-depth appreciation and exploration.
