Lyrical is the style where emotion and storytelling come into play through expression and imagination. By using the mood of the music, dancers will use movement to portray a storyline that is told through their dance, costumes, and music. Our class includes a warm-up, exercises to help students improve flexibility, and movement. A center combination will normally take place.
Lyrical dance is a great style in that it incorporates skills from ballet and jazz. It is a form of dance that is fluid and a little faster pace than ballet but a little slower than jazz. We teach our students how to show expression and emotion to describe the music and how to share a story with their graceful and continuous movements. This class is a good class to challenge each student to tell a story through poetic choreography.
