modern dance is the same by both starting aroung the 100s and having struture.

Modern dance is sort of like the "less strict" version of Ballet. In ballet, turn outs, points, ankles, knees, posture, and all that are extremely important and ballerinas spend years in perfecting them. However in modern, there are no turn outs, instead they turn in (in terms of the direction your knees are facing), and they don't emphasize on your point either. Modern is something less "formal" and "'strict" compared to ballet i guess.
