Modern dance emerged at the beginning of the 20th century in a time when ballet had previously dominated the dancing world. While Europe claims the roots of modern dance, the innovations made by dancers in the United States quickly gave a home to the developing dance form. Modern is a dance form reacting to the constraints and formality of ballet, modern dance developed through the ideals of 20th-century America, such as democracy, social protest, and individuality, disregarding the strict aristocratic roles and conformity from which ballet emerged. This changed the language of dance choreography and the way that dances developed.
