Modern Theatre dance is a rhythmic dance style which originated in America before spreading elsewhere. It is often seen on the stages of musical productions and is known for its theatrical qualities. The style uses travelling steps, high kicks, leaps, and turns which all need strength and flexibility. This is a highly energetic dance style.

The phrase "Modern dance" is also applied to Ballroom dance of the English or International style, but here we use the term to describe twentieth century, on-stage concert dance. The modern dance style does not have set rules. Dancers often create their own dance routines using their emotions and moods, but many performances are also choreographed. In general, modern dancers prefer a more relaxed and free style of dancing and use body weight to increase movement, while ballerinas try to be light on their feet.
