Graham technique that was created by Martha Graham (born in Pittsburg, USA) is the foundation of contemporary dance. She sets apart the basic elements of contemporary dance like “contraction”, “release” and “spiral”. These elements have been adopted later not only by her students (including Paul Taylor and Merce Cunnigham) but also by all following artists in the field. Graham technique is appropriate for performers with ballet background as well as for amateurs with moderate physical skills. The technique provokes us to understand the body as a whole that is comprised of interconnected parts. Thus the movement is a natural and logical act of this whole. Special attention is focused on breathing and the role of gravity in movement.

About Limón Technique: Following the principles of his teacher Doris Humphrey, Limón's main goal was to express his personal relationships with the surrounding environment through an organic movement. His technique is not encoded, but it is divided into a variety of physical extremes: fall and recovery, rebound, gravity, interruption and continuation of movement, isolation. He believed that a structured technique would limit the creativity that was the basis of his teachings. In this way, he gave his students the opportunity to find their own movement and personal uniqueness. There are many words and ideas that are a direct association to Limón's technique, such as his humanism, the use of breath, musicality, lyricism and dramatic qualities; However, the prevailing consensus is that movement is always an expression of the human spirit.
