Lyrical dance emphasizes interpretation of music lyrics to tell a story with movement that can be fluid or abstract. Dancers learn to express themselves through the lyrics of contemporary, emotive music. Lyrical is strongly rooted in ballet technique while blending jazz and modern styles. Lyrical dance is characterized by sustained extensions, dynamic movement, and expressive presence. Students are encouraged to take a Ballet and Jazz class in addition to Lyrical.
