Lyrical/contemporary is a fluid form of dance done to popular ballads and slower contemporary music. Our contemporary program focuses on both strong and controlled aspects of legwork of ballet and modern, the torso with contract and release, floor work, recovery, and improvisation. Each dancer is taught to individually interpret his or her movement with feeling, motion and style with the focus of telling a story or creating the picture of the song or inspired emotion. This style combines the fluid beauty of ballet with the sharper quality of jazz movement. A ballet or jazz class is strongly recommended along with lyrical/contemporary to build in technique.
