What separates Neo Classical from Contemporary in definition?


Has the term Neo-Classical been lost?

Not as long as Balanchine is still performed.


As a matter of aesthetics, "Neo-" anything means a return to organizing the work with a return to principles of a previous artistic era.


"Contemporary" simply means organizing a work in the light of the aesthetics of the here and now.


There is no reason why a work cannot be both Neo-Classic and Contemporary.
