Lyrical class is designed for intermediate to advanced students with previous and current training in Ballet. Classes include warm up, isolations, stretches, across the floor progressions, and choreography combinations. Exercises focus on increasing flexibility and strength, rhythms and isolation of body parts, and expressing personal style.
While Lyrical dance combines technical elements of Ballet and Jazz, students will concentrate on freedom and fluidity of movement. Lyrical is influenced by the expressiveness and airier aspects of dance.
Classes focus on stretch, strength, subtle and dynamic expression, and conveying musicality and emotion through properly aligned movement. Students are encouraged to explore emotion and individuality in dance through freestyle/improvisation and performance of lyrical choreography.
Lyrical 1 is available to all 1st grade and older students. Level 2 is by invitation only to students who are currently enrolled in Elementary Level II Ballet classes.
