Lyrical Dance

This style of dance blends the sustained controlled movement of ballet with freedom, power, and dynamics of jazz and modern dance. Lyrical is a fusion of ballet and jazz, with expressive motions that tell a story. Movements that flow seamlessly from one to the other, held and suspended, connecting motion and emotion.

Lyrical Dance is usually performed to music with lyrics, which leads it’s choreography to show inspiration, emotions, fluidity between the accents and silence in the song.
