Have you heard the terms minuet, sarabande, gigue (or jig), bourée, rigaudon, gavotte, courante, chaconne or passacaille mentioned in the context of music. These dances are all examples of baroque dances.

The social dances do not seem to have lasted long. The theatrical dance would eventually evolve into classical ballet, but its baroque period might be said to have ended in the 1760's. Modern Dance 1600's - Present Modern dance has continued to grow and develop over the past 100 years.
Centers on a dancer's own interpretations instead of structured steps, as in traditional ballet dancing. A modern dancer rejects the classical ballet stance of an upright, erect body, often opting instead for deliberate falls to the floor. Emphasizes the importance of alignment and efficient use of the body.
