Contemporary Ballet is said to have been started by George Balanchine. Baryshnikov was a student of this type of dance.
(I think) It is because they do not want to dance Ballet. According to what I have heard, Contemporary is supposed to be against Ballet, and it was supposed to be for people who want to break free from the rules of Ballet. The woman that invented Contemporary probably learned Ballet and probably found it very restricted and questioned about (e.g.) why the positions were like that and why she could not do it another way. I think that is why she invented Contemporary.

Ballet is actually very important for contemporary technique because contemporary is a mix of ballet and modern. You need the technique of ballet and the free movement of modern. Most contemporary dancers have a lot of training in ballet. Ballet also helps with strengthening and building the right muscles needed for contemporary as well as the basic movements such as turning.

Classical and contemporary ballet bear a resemblance to each other but there are many big differences. Contemporary ballet is usually much faster, and doesn't really tell a story it is usually abstract. There is also much more freedom in contemporary ballet, choreographers can try new and different steps, it also is not as focused on turnout and high extensions, and is alot lower to the ground then classical ballet which is all about turnout high extensions and is very lifted up.
