*Classes for ages 8 to adult*

Lyrical dance is a style of dance created from the fusion of ballet with jazz and dance techniques and is a "cousin" to those styles. Lyrical dancing is performed to music with lyrics to inspire movements to express strong emotions the choreographer feels from the lyrics in the chosen song.


CONTEMPORARY:
